Me - Unplugged
For the past five months I have loved writing here at Various Stages. I love this forum. I love learning about these amazing people. I love sharing our opinions and our differences. I love that I’m not judged for my opinion or for not going to church. I am honored to write with people who are so wonderful.
My brother is preparing to go on a mission. I can’t even describe how proud I am of him. Even though I’m not active in the church and I don’t think that I’ve been the best example, I’m excited for the choice that he’s made. Several weeks ago, he took me to lunch and it came up that he read my Introductory Post here at Various Stages. Being that he was only 10 or 11 when I got pregnant, he really didn’t see all the drama that went on. But that day at lunch, he told me how sad it made him how other people had treated me. I agree with him…it is sad. But I can only change how I feel about what happened in the past. I’ve learned so much about myself from writing here at VSofM about that time and I love the perspective it has brought me. Thanks for reading.
