I've been in Uni for a good few years. The CU just keeps getting worse and worse. They way they treat people, the leadership team, how the leadership team is chosen, no proper guidance, etc. Am I the only one to have an awful CU experience?
I've been brought up as a Christian and I've been a born again Christian for a very long time and my experience at uni has truly rocked my foundations.
Does anyone else have anything to share?
I urge you to please be honest and open. This will not just help me, but a lot of other people who go through this every day.
You are your own person. It is good to have one's foundations shaken to see if they were made of sand or stone. Trust in yourself and your judgement and above all Know Thyself. In life we move from one stage of maturity to another. That's just how it is. As children we believe in our peers and in Santa, later we shed those silly beliefs, then as teenagers we start to believe in idols and celebs and start to rebel against parents, pushing the boundaries to find our own space. Some take up religion in those years when they are quite vulnerable in terms of thought processes and the need to belong to something. As young adults we start to question things more, we look for cohesive arguments, we start to research things, we challenge ideas and notions (as result of education processes) and just like the Santa beliefs, we start to wonder what is true and what is not true. Another change in our lives begins its path. Some go on to sincerely search for truth, others don't bother and just plod on following everyone else. My advice to you, is to be yourself, know yourself, and follow your instinct. Take nothing for granted, question and challenge everything and shed every fear to do so with your friends and peers. This is your life. Be in control.
One of my friends joined the CU at her university and she couldn't stand it. They were incredibly *****y to her when she started dating an atheist guy and when they found out they were sleeping together, they were even more horrible to her. She was all excited about joining the CU. By her second year she hated it.
Have you tried not believing in the wrong god?
