I have three siblings, two brothers and a sister. All of them are atleast 22 years old and married. My brother, Mark and his wife just left the church about a year ago. I only found out about two months ago.
Everyone else knew they had left except for me because my parents wanted to ‘protect’ me. I don’t care that they left. The church brings many people happiness and if it makes you happy great, that’s awesome. But for me it’s making me miserable hearing/seeing so many sexist and homophobic things.
When I found out that they aren’t Mormon anymore I was also glad because now I won’t be the first one to leave. Unfortunately It absolutely broke my parents hearts. I don’t know what I’m going to do I am so so sad because I don’t want to disappoint them but I also want to be free to love who I love.
