Guilt finally liberated me

The path to freedom from religious indoctrination is different for each one us. I am writing this post to share mine. I was always told a kid that the credit for success was always shared with God, but never the credit was failure. It was an this burden of guilt which made me feel so helpless in the face of failure. I always felt that God was there to celebrate with me when I succeeded but never when I needed someone to take the blame for  failure. That blame was always my own. He was like a fair weather friend.

It just seemed unfair. And that's when I kicked him out. And that's when I was free.
