Just because Mormonism tried to monopolize literally everything good in your life doesn’t mean you should cede it to them by being averted to thinking about it or being around it or talking about it and trying to separate the Mormon emotional tendrils in your mind from those things. Doing so is another form of surrender. A perfect exit from the church is maybe complete indifference to the church’s fragile ego and doing whatever you want with whatever you want however you want whenever you want whatever they say about it. I’m being vague, because leaving the church behind mentally and sometimes physically ought to free us up to live the best life we wanted to live but were afraid because of our conditioning. The gift of anti-Mormon literature is that this religion can be shown to be a transparent fraud, and you’re allowed to learn as much as about that as you need to kill the nagging suspicion that you’re making a bad decision. Not everyone in every religion gets to have that. Exmormons are empowered to become whatever they want to be next without FOMO dragging them backwards. That’s free agency if I ever had some.
