Atheism is one of the best things that’s happened to me
I feel so so so so liberated now. I feel so free I love being an atheist Catholicism fucked me up man fucked me up bad
Be proud to be an atheist! I don’t let religion hold me back anymore and neither should yo I!!!

Once again, death gently tiptoes into my life to remind me how fragile life is.
The victim this time was not someone I was really close to, but someone I am mourning for. Of all the deaths near me in the past few years, I have dealt with none of them in positive, conclusive ways.
Part of the reason I haven’t been able to deal with these deaths is because they were all in a religious context-people from my church, people from my catholic school, etc. Every end of life was accompanied by massive outpouring of Christian responses to death, the typical “guardian angel,” “you’re with God now” , “I will see you in heaven”
I wish there was something I can do, but there’s not.
And this is when I question: is it actually possible for an atheist to deal with death in a positive way? Can someone who doesn’t subscribe to the belief in an afterlife ever feel at peace with the fact that someone they cherished is gone, the way religious people can?
