I had manners. I was fairly attractive. I was funny. My life fell apart when I was diagnosed with stupid fucking breast cancer. I don't give a fuck if I have manners, my looks were destroyed. I lost my sense of humor.
You don't need religion to have morals. If you can't determine right from wrong then you lack empathy, not religion. Simple as that. No need to blame religion on your lack of morals. In the end, it's a battle between you and your soul.
I finally got back my peace of mind yesterday. And I could feel the effect it had on me immediately. Thank you God for the strength and steps it took to find it. I am at peace now and it is a beautiful feeling.
