     OP - August 10, 2017, 11:28 PM

    Hi there, Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a long time lurker, and also (compared to most of you on here) an old person. Well, ok I'm just old. Sigh.  sad
    I have a long and often very sad story to tell. Maybe I'll tell it in bits and pieces, or maybe I won't.  Roll Eyes
    I left Islam long ago mainly because I found it was deeply inadequate, on so many levels. I was always most interested in how to fully develop as a person, and so I went on a deep spiritual and personal exploration. That's what made me realise that Islam is desperately limited and limiting, it is a terrible hindrance to the flourishing of human potential, especially if you're a female.

     I'm based in London. Of Pakistani stock, like so many here.

    I read so many sad stories here of ex-muslims struggling to reconcile their desires and aspirations against the suffocating strictures placed on them by their family and culture, and I wish I had some helpful advice. I've been there, and left my family behind. It's not an easy road for us rebels. But I'm finally fairly dance happy and excited to be alive. Sending good thoughts to all the ex-muslims out there - you're bright and brilliant, all of you, for seeing through your indoctrination far away hug.

    Welcome! parrot
    I would appreciate it if you would tell your story. The more we get our experiences out there the more we can help others..

    Thanks for the parrot, Three.
    I guess you're right that just putting our experiences out there can be useful, even if the stories are grim. One morning when I've had a good night's sleep I'll see if I can order my thoughts long enough to write a little bio.
