I'm honestly not sure how to feel about the article. A big part of me reads it and understands it. I was raised in a REALLY strict catholic home, and was absolutely terrified of the idea of God, death, and hell. Even as I grew up and began to shed my religious ideals I felt terrible for literally years because I felt deep down to my core that I was going to hell, and that I was letting God down. It wouldn't be until I was in college, and really began to absorb philosophy that I would be able to completely shed those feelings.
Now, the other smaller part of me wants to chalk this up to poor parenting, and just bad environments. I know tons of people brought up in completely religious homes that are completely content, but that is because their homes taught only the positives aspects of their faith (tolerance, acceptance, and love). With that said there are a lot of really familiar things in this article that bring me back to a time that wasn't so great.
