Advice- How do I remind myself?

the real answer as you said is time.
one thing you are doing alot of now is called rumination, personally i think its part of the healing process and is necessary, but it can become all consuming and take over your life. read up on it, and try to manage it if its affecting your daily life.
Another thing that i think would really help(ive not done this yet, but hope to at some point) is to speak to another ex muslim Or maybe an athiest in person. I think there is nothing like speaking to someone who understands your point of view and can give you some validation.
but i dont think a musim(even a liberal one) would be helpful, as at their core they wont understand the conclusions you have come to.
when i lost my faith, in some ways it validated the way i naturally looked at the world, something about the way you are writing makes me feel like you need a god to exist for this world to make sense to you(im probably completely wrong about this).
Sometimes we just need to accept that we are never going to have all the answers about where we came from, and how this universe
came into existence(this gives me a headache whenever i think about it).
And we need to accept that evil people do get away with murder, and justice will not always be served.
i have no idea if these concepts mess with you, but something about your writing makes me think they do.
My wife is a muslim, and i see her constantly take comfort in the thought that justice will eventually be served to bad people.
A perfectly just God who sentences his imperfect creation to infinite punishment for finite sins is impossible
