I grew up in an extremely NON-religious family but i asked to be sent to a catholic high school. I conerted w hen i was around 11 or 12 years old and i love it. I think it has helped me heal and survive through some of my mental illnesses. It might just be me and my personal thoughts but i think that sometimes having something to believe in when youre lost is a really good thing. Although i dont believe everything in the bible, i still pray to God at the end of every day. I love religion .. i find it so fascinating.
