For most of my life I attended and found solace in church, and found prayer to be an important part of my life. But in 2013 I had a complete breakdown, and have been unable to attend church since. Even prayer has no meaning.
My one attempt had me break down into an emotional mess, and the fear of the same thing happening has held me back.
I'm beginning to feel drawn back to church now but that fear of breaking down again is so real, I don't know any members of the local congregation, or the vicar which makes it hard. My husband has agreed to accompany me (he is a non believer), but something is still holding me back.
Has anyone else experienced similar, and how do you make that first step?
