I'd have to say that happened when I got asked to leave church for busting out laughing in the middle of a sermon because of how ridiculous it was. I've lost some friends here and there, but gained much perspective.
I didn't want to lose faith at first. In fact, I kept trying for many years, in denial that I am the only one actually responsible for my life events. After parting ways with a particularly hypocritical Pentecostal boy, I knew I couldn't play the fool any longer.
I remember trying a few churches growing up. Jehovah’s Witness, Church of the Nazarene, and a few different Pentecostal churches. Looking back, I feel kind of guilty, seeing as I seemed to only go to do crafts & eat snacks or be entertained by crazy rantings.
As much as I like to use my imagination and pretend, I'm more practical than I let on.
