Let’s embrace ’em: Atheists, agnostics, freethinkers

Most of us have a really hard time fully embracing people who are not spiritual or religious.  I used to struggle with it too.  Big time!! How did I get over it? Hmm. Years of internal work helped me identify where my issues were coming from. It was confrontation time.  Getting to know some beautiful people who are atheists/freethinkers helped too. Thanks to all of them for nudging me out of my comfort zone. Let’s all learn to show some love and compassion. We can agree to disagree at times. It’s all good provided we do so respectfully.
