My religious experience happened when I was about 14 Before then, I used to be hesitant about doing certain acts that were considered sinful in my religion. At 14, I finally realized that to reach my full potential, I had to live my life by my own guidelines and not by the holy book. Since then I have been answering to nobody but myself.
My dad knew a lot about religion yet he never bothered to share his knowledge with me. My mother was oblivious to religion.
I am not religious at all
before: It has made me re-examine my goals. It has also allowed me to see my urges in a new light. No longer were these urges immoral and sinful, they were now natural and pure
emotions: My emotional state before this was one of anxiety. I was afraid of committing sinful acts. Since then my anxiety has disappeared.
