It was a long and slow process that started when I began college. Five years ago, I realized that I was holding onto beliefs just because that was all I knew growing up. I began to go through everything I had been taught, everything I thought I believed, and slowly shed the shell that I found myself locked in. I've only recently (in the last year or so) come out as an atheist to my friends, though I am still "in the closet" when it comes to my family.
I want to meet and befriend like-minded people. I can't talk about the things I believe in at home, so I want to surround myself with people that I can converse with and who intellectually stimulate me.
They are pretty awesome. I didn't get up and move around, so I didn't meet everyone. I'll have to fix that next time.
