I resigned five years ago and have tossed most of that nonsense off of what I call my Mind Bus, a metaphor that put me in the driver's seat of my life in order to help me deal with lifelong anxiety disorder. I just finished several months of therapy to deal with this anxiety. Abuse as a young child and trauma as a teenager set me up for the anxiety, but my desire to live according to the tenets of Mormonism cemented it into my psyche causing me untold pain. Resigning from the church after more than sixty years allowed me to free myself from that conditioning and deal with all of the pain.
I wonder how many and leaving the church now and at what rate.
