religion. until last year jesus was someone i looked to. god was something i knew was real. religion, church and faith are fundamental building blocks that an inseparable amount of my first 20 years of memories are twisted around. it’s shaky ground when you go from 'yes, absolutely' to 'i don't want to say no'. it’s all together life changing to say it for the first time out loud- god is not real and religion is bullshit. i still haven’t ‘come out’ in to my family.

Do you believe in reincarnation?
I think the idea of reincarnation is really beautiful - that we are all connected on such a vast plane, that the people you know, people you don’t, and people who’ve you only read about in history books may have been your mothers, best-friends and lovers in a past life. 
It explains things like that connection you feel with people, or the unjustified dislike when you hardly know them and I love the idea that we subconsciously (could) tap into the knowledge and experiences of those past lives.
In the end though, I choose not to believe in it. When you die your body rots and becomes part of the Earth and in a hundred million years when the Sun explodes and the Earth is reduced to cosmic ash we will become stars again and that’s almost just as beautiful.
