The Burden of the Lone Voice
I’ve heard a number of people express lately to me that they’re sad I’ve stepped away from attending the Mormon church. And I’m sad about it sometimes, too. Except when I’m really, really angry that I lost my community and that it all happened so quietly. So today I’m saying, on behalf of others like me, if you wanted me to stay, you needed to not make me the only voice. You needed to stand up for me and make me feel less alone.
