Dan's Story:

Just tired of being afraid of hell. I came to realize that there was no factual, reasonable basis for belief in a fantasy that just made me miserable. Dropping it was like being born again. How ironic. But the sense of unworthiness and self-loathing lasted for decades and I still struggle with it particularly in the area of sexuality.
