Advice to Ex-Muslims from Ex-Muslims

Advice to Ex-Muslims from Ex-Muslims May 11, 2009

Mathurine, an ex-Muslim, has some advice for ex-Mulsims:

  1. Embrace Your Anger — “You were lied to. You were betrayed. You were fooled. You have the right to be angry.”
  2. Get Over Your Regret — “Kick yourself in the ass a few times. Mourn everything you lost. But pick yourself up and get on with it. You already wasted time — don’t waste more drowning yourself in your sorrows.”
  3. Hold Steady — “Create a support network, and try to stay away from intense debates with Muslims.”
  4. Be Cautious About Religion — “Even if you still believe in some sort of god or gods, you should probably take it easy with religion, at least for a while. Otherwise, you may be setting yourself up for a pattern of devotion, disillusionment, and disbelief.”
  5. Life Your Life in Color — “Life without Islam can be a marvelous, beautiful thing. I urge you to take the opportunity to do things you couldn’t or wouldn’t do before when and how you can.”

If you’re interested in Islam and how to help those who are recovering from its clutches, be sure to read the whole thing.
