I've been dating this girl for a significant amount of time (about 8 months) and we have gotten pretty serious. We really love each other a lot, I can most definitely see a future with this girl, and even though we are both in school still, we have talked about getting married in the next 2 to 3 years, if we still dating, of course. Just to preface my actual question and problem a little bit:

I left the church only about 8 months ago, and even though I know can't deny the endless facts pointing to the falsity of the church, and I know that my clear, logical-thinking mind will serve me greater happiness in life, I still sometimes encounter brief thoughts of regret. It really confuses the hell out me. These thoughts are very small, and go away after a few minutes, but I assume that I st

I don't really think that being apart of the moromon religion has anything to do with being hardworking, honest, and good. That is a personal choice. I've met some asshole mormons, and I've met some really good mormons. It just depends on the person, not the religion.

So, my older sister is on a mission right now, and she has missed all of the drama that went on with me and my mission, and eventual leaving of the church. I have become pretty close with my sis while she's been on her mission, which is weird, but cool because she totally understands what kind of guilt my mom puts on her kids and that sort of thing. A few days ago in her email to me, she asked me

I remember the first time I had "the talk" I think I was 11 or 12 years old and I heard it from my mom, because my parents are divorced. I had no clue what masturbation even was until I was 14 years old. My friend told me it was "playing with yourself". My parents had never told me what it was, so I didn't even know how to do it, or what it was. I didn't even masturbate until

Yeah, I know a few Ammons. All extremely TBM. Or at lest their parents are.

Hey everyone, just a little update on what's been going on with my family situation. So, last Sunday I was at home to get some help from a friend on homework for a big test I have this week, which meant I had to go home for a few hours, which meant I ended up talking to my TBM mom. Things became a little sour last time I was over at my house, resulting in me basically getting verbally abused by m

Priesthood Session in a nutshell: Don't look at porn, don't jerk off, be nice to your wife, be a good dad, honor your priesthood, blah blah blah... priesthood session was always boring and an incredible waste of time.

I just read that review and I thought it was hilarious how they said at the end of that review that one of the characters was "haunted by two giant cups of coffee" in his dream. hahahaha I need to see this. Trey and Matt are flawlessly and consistently funny.

In my experience being raised by an extremely TBM mother, I've noticed some major flaws in her parenting skills due to the brain washing of the church. My mother did a really good job raising me and my 5 other siblings all by herself (my parents divorced when I was 6), she loved and cared for all of us and did the best job she could without a father figure in the home, and for that I am very grat

Well, still can't find a job for the life of me, I don't have the money to afford a car or bike, I've got bills to pay, homework to finish, food to find, and my family still hates me for not going on a mission!

I was supposed to go on a mission back in October, but I didn't end up going, obviously. My only advice to you, echoing what people have said, is to just say no. Be true to yourself. Don't live your life out of fearing what your family and others will think of you. Don't live for your parents, live for yourself. You are an adult that can make your own choices. Do what you know you need to do, and

I am writing one of my friends' who is on a mission in Japan right now (he's on the south island, so he wasn't affected by the tsunami), and he brought up something I found to be pretty funny. So, it turns out that my buddy who's been out for a little over a year, absolutely HATES missionary work. He loves Japan, the culture and living accommodations, but he is so fed up with being a missionary a

I'm really tempted to use that and send it to my mom in an email. But that would probably just fuel the fire. It's probably best that I just stay away from her for a little while.

First off, thanks for the awesome advice from everyone on the other thread I started last night, it really helps and makes me feel a lot better about my situation. I wasn't able to answer all the questions on the other thread because it closed, but I just thought I'd post some of the things my mother sent to me in an email this morning, just so you know what kind of brain washed mega TBM bullshit

I unfortunately have a mom who cares more about her religion that her own son who is just trying to live life. I brought up the whole things where I know quite a few exmormons who are doing much better in their lives without the church, but my mom is so TBM, she just reverts to the "that's what satan is making them think, but they'll pay for it in the end" argument. There is no convinci

I totally agree. I've been realizing that I can't let myself be around my mom or my family for a while, because they just bring me down, make me feel guilty, and rip on me emotionally because of their religion. I need to take responsibility for myself and stay away from those kind of people for a while until i get my life somewhat figured out. I refuse to live with my parents ever again. thanks f

thanks for the advice, it really helps. It's just hard because while i'm trying to find a job, neither of my parents will help me pay for college (I'm 19), but will throw down 10,000 dollars on my brothers for their missions. That just proves that i'll have to bite the bullet and pay my own way.

Had a pretty nasty argument with my ultra TBM mother tonight and it made me sad to see how brain washed my mom really is. I was home this weekend, it was spring break last week, so I was getting ready to go back up to school when I asked my mom if I could borrow some money for groceries when I got back up to school. I am just a young college student, I have been trying my best to find a job, but

Congratulations! Be happy about your decision, don't have any regrets. Just like the others have said in this thread, YOU ARE FREE! Live life how YOU want, not how TSCC wants you to live.
