Be Warned


I would really appreciate it if those who are religious would stop pushing their beliefs on those who are more spiritual but don’t believe in going to a building to pray. I have only been here for a few months, and being a single woman, I always feel like a target.

I was walking on the beach one morning, minding my own business, and a person approached me claiming to be religious, but he was only trying to get me to pay money for a supplement business. When I declined to pay for the business, he became very nasty and started to make me feel guilty for being single.

This is the main reason why I avoid churches altogether — for reasons like this. I have been trying to be as polite as possible, but the next person who tries to push their religious beliefs on me is going to be surprised when I tell them to F off.
