Can You Let Yourself Be A Beginner?

Faith Crisis Beginner

Let's talk about being a beginner and your faith crisis.

No matter the faith: Mormon, Evangelical, Jehovah's Witness, Seventh-Day Adventist and on and on and on. It feels the same. Heartache first. Freedom second. (or tenth?)

I want you to think for a moment about when you were younger and you got your first job, had your first broken heart, started college, got married, became a parent for the first time. All beginnings, yeah? Firsts.

Your faith crisis is no different.

You are in uncharted territory.

Everything is new.

Everything feels scary.

Everything has changed.

You are in the beginning steps of a faith crisis. This is like walking into a foreign country and you know no one and you do not speak the language and you feel scared. Eventually you will figure it out, but until then, yikes. 

Let yourself be a beginner. There is really no way to not be beginner right now, right?

You will need to feel all the emotions that come with this process.

Know that you will not always be a beginner in this particular arena. It may be hard to imagine, but it is true.

When you see people taking about the different stages of a faith crisis, ( I will post more about this later )  just know more is coming and you do not have to have it all figured out right now. You will experience your faith crisis in perfect time.

Don't try to rush it. Let it unfold as it needs to.

All you have to do right now is be in it. You do not have to have the answers. You will come to your own conclusion in your own time.

There is a lot to learn in this phase of your faith crisis. There are no short cuts.

I look at those of us in this position as pioneers. We are paving the way for those coming up behind us and there will be many.

You are one of the brave souls doing the unexpected work of a faith crisis. There is no one way to get through it. Just keep swimming.

You got this.

Middle of a Mormon Faith Crisis? Now what?

Mormon Faith Crisis ~ Now What?

You have found yourself in the middle of a Mormon Faith Crisis. A place that you never even knew could happen to you.

You are sitting there on your couch, or bed, or kitchen table, you are looking around your house that used to feel perfect and right (for the most part). You just finished a big cry and now you are just sitting there looking and not quite sure what the future holds. You feel empty and void of all the emotions that just spilled out of you.

The house you are still staring at, blankly, represents all that you knew. All that you wanted for you family. All that you planned for. And now, you know that life is not going to be the same again.

There are conversations that have to happen.

There are feelings that have to be felt.

There are relationships that may change.

There are stories that now have different endings.

What are you going to do?

{{{Breathe.}}

Know that you will make it through.

You will stand on solid footing again, even if it may look completely different than it does in this moment.

How do I know this? Because I have been there. I have stared with new eyes, at everything I had created for my life and felt empty and scared.

Have things changed? 

Yes. 

Life is different than it used to be.

I really do believe that the experience of a Faith Crisis is wonderful and perfect, in all of it's imperfections.

Cry it out when you need to. Suck it up when you have to.

Get through it.

You will experience a wide variety of emotions.

Remember that emotions are just feelings and feelings will not kill you.

Let the feelings come and go, ebb and flow.

And then, when you are ready to no longer be in limbo. When you are ready to look at life as it falls around you. When you are ready to step into your new way of being, but you need a little help, a little nudge. Message me.

You will get through this and I am here to help.

You are just becoming who you were meant to be. It is perfectly unfolding.

Let it be messy for a time. It is all part of the rebuilding.

You are loved.
