"I'm more spiritual. I didn't really have a good experience with religion as a kid. Long story short, it didn't make sense to me. I went to church but religion was never spoken of in my home. It was pretty dysfunctional and chaotic. I had two alcoholic parents. I'm in recovery, now and spirituality makes more sense to me. It's helped me get through a bunch of crap in my life. It's not as specific and you can develop your own spirituality to fit you.  My advice to the world is to be kind. You never know where your help is coming from." - Sara, Portland
