I've been lurking this site for quite some time now. I was "red pilled" about six years ago now. It started with all the liberal bashing of the
Bush era. I became interested as to why so many people were angry with the way the country was being run. I started researching all the 9/11
conspiracies and that lead me to the world of documentaries. I became more interested in current events and soon realized the news stations were
mumbling garbage to everybody. I started seeing the buzz words being used to incite emotions in order to cut off peoples' rational minds. As I
continued to wake up, I suffered through all the stages of grief and questioned everything I had once believed. I began to actively listen to
everything including what I: learned in school, heard from the news(all forms but mostly alternative sources), and heard from friends and family.
The "new age" fad was quite interesting around the whole 2012 time, but It amounted to more rubble. I did however learn many
interesting things about the occult and ancient civilizations. This active thinking has allowed me to re-affirm my Christian faith in a way I could
not do as a child and teenager. I can see many flaws in the church, but that is just mankind for you. I feel as if all the hypocrisy criticized by the
nay-Sayers amounts to nothing more than an incorrect following of Christ. In my opinion, there are many arguments against Christianity that in
reality are just arguments against particular churches and church leaders.
My "awakening" has caused some major life improvements. First, I have embarked on the horrific journey of living a healthy lifestyle.
In December of 2010 I weighed in at an astounding 410 pounds.At this point, I finally realized that I was fat and lazy and I hated myself for letting
myself get to that point. I completely changed my lifestyle by first cutting out processed foods and sodas. I also stopped drinking beer five days a
week, only drinking on the weekends. I planted a garden and started growing my own healthy food. I began exercising regularly by lifting weights and
running barefoot. My body took several weeks to adapt to the process of running barefoot around a field and was accomplished through interval
Now that I have gotten control of my life, I have dropped 140 pounds and will graduate this December with a degree in Business
Management. I hope to still have a long journey ahead, and hope that I can help others on their journey.
