I deconverted 14 months ago but I haven’t blogged much publicly about my experience. The internal process which led to my deconversion also led to dramatic changes in my personality, relationship and the way I make decisions, and it’s left me a bit emotionally raw even though it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
Have you all seen the movie Frozen? My husband tells me that out of the Disney princesses I am somehow two very different personalities: Elsa and Anna. Elsa, the older, fearful, responsible one. Anna, the carefree, youthful, optimistic one. Starting at age 16 religion turned me into an Elsa and since my deconversion Anna has been making herself known through my Quixie personna. Would you believe I never used to have fun and barely ever laughed before 14 months ago?

I plan on writing more about my deconversion experience over the next coming months.
