When I was in my mid-twenties I went through a difficult period of time. I started to experience anxiety - something I had never before had - which stemmed from deep feelings of fear that had been piling up throughout my life and were bubbling to the surface. I was a new mom, which brought with it the realization that I was now responsible for passing on values and beliefs to a new person, but I didn't really even know what those beliefs were. I wasn't raised with one religion, my parents were different religions and it made for an interesting childhood. I celebrated Christmas, and Ramadan. I enjoyed the best of many worlds, but when push came to shove, all of that was just fluff. I didn't really know what I believed.
