Does anyone have any experience of it taking time to adjust to new mindset and form new relationships after leaving Mormonism? It seems that patterns have a tendency of recurring (or swinging to an opposite extreme - e.g. reacting to something rather than setting one's own course) prior to settling into a healthy, balanced middle-ground.
Difficult to relate to Mormons fully because I don't share their foundational beliefs and even harder to relate to non-Mormons who can't relate to the first 38 years of my life and the difficulties of making a transition out of Mormonism. The Christians around me are very supportive of the new direction I'm looking to take in the next half of my life, but don't fully understand where I am coming from and what things are helpful vs unhelpful to me.
Any of this sound familiar? I am guessing that I am going through a process that many others have experienced but that 'going it alone' isn't necessarily the best way...
