I was nervous about resigning my church membership partly because of the idea that it would take months and other Mormons would 'love bomb' me. I was scared that I would be tricked into staying somehow. I think that's part of the way the church crushes you: it makes you unsure of yourself as a person and unsure that you can stand up to scrutiny.

I sent my resignation letter less than two weeks ago. I have received the standard response and finally... finally... I am no longer a member of the church.

It took me a while to remember who I am. Then I remembered! I am a secretary. I chase down paperwork, I send passive-aggressive emails, I make annoying phone calls. These are all handy skills if you want to escape from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

This post has no point other than the fact that I am happy. Please be happy with me! :-D

Congratulations. :)

It took me months to get out because the Bishop kept sitting on my paperwork.

Has literally taken from when I left BYU in Feb. of 2015 until now to start the process. Procrastination at its finest.

That's OK Brybrooks, as the longer you're out, the better your life becomes.
