Hi 😊 I’ve just recently started getting…

Hi 😊 I’ve just recently started getting kinda comfortable with calling myself an atheist. Do you have any advice for someone who wasn’t necessarily raised religious, but still has some anxiety and guilt about being atheist?

Look for the positives in atheism.

We have so much power to change our own lives, to change other peoples lives, to change the world, to change the future.

We have all this power, and its in our choices. We can quite literally just choose to be good.

You can choose to be a good listener, and if you struggle you can choose to develop better habits that help you be a good listener. And you can choose to do all you can with what you learn by listening to empower other people. To do more good.

Plus we have all this responsibility, and yeah it can be daunting, but also, when you take responsibility for the bad stuff you do you’re making a choice to make the world a little better. And when you take responsibility for changing that bad, or for doing good youre making the world better.

Plus, the fact that our lives on this earth are limited makes it special. Right now, in this very moment YOU are alive. And its not going to last forever, its not going to happen again at some other place when its over. Right now you exist. “Once in a lifetime” is how we describe things that are rare but great, life is the once.

There is so much wonder and awe to being an atheist. So much relief that you are special simply for being you. That you have evidence of your strength simply by looking back on what all youve done. Your power doesn’t come from some other unearthly being, it comes from you and your community.

Dont feel guilty. You are able to make the choice to live your life to the best of the ability instead of following the mostlikely false word of one most likely non existance, out of the many most likely non existance gods/goddesses.

You are going to do your best. Even if your best isnt always the same, todays best may be higher or better than tomorrows, but you can still do your best.

You are going to take every situation and get the chance to evaluate it independently and if new info comes you can use that to change your perspectives.

Youre allowing yourself so many opportunities and so much positivity.

I hope it all works out for you💚

Dear Theists,

I am not here to be saved.

I am not here to be granted your pity.

I am not here to be “enlightened” by your beliefs.

I am not here for you to attack.

I am not here for you at all.

I am here because I choose my beliefs after YEARS of research and exploration on them individually. I am here because I chose what I believe is the best for me and those my life will affect.

If you want to learn about my beliefs or discuss them peacefully I am all about it, but I am not here for you.

I am not broken. I am a whole, loving, respectful atheist. I am here just because I am.

Hopefully I will come back to it reenergized, but four years in Im feeling a little drained by it.

See you soon?

Last semester they crumble and tore my positive message. This semester they tore it down.

Its fine. Im not phased, the new and improved message looks great!

Help this blog out!

Hey guys, Im trying really hard to keep up with this blog and keep it on track, but I’m losing a bit of the passion for it…

Please, help keep the positive secularism going by submitting posts, sending asks, sending in messages/asks with suggestions on topics or post ideas etc.

They can be texts, graphics, images, whatever! Positive Atheism should thrive here!

Do not underestimate yourself and all you can do

You are not so weak as to needing strength from a devine being.

You are already strong enough.

You make the choice to be strong and to get stronger.

You put the work in

You.
