Recovering Athiest needs support

I was raised in a home where all religious and spiritual matters were considered weakness and insanity, I find it hard to believe in things and I'm not even sure I understand the concept of 'faith'. Maybe this will help.

I grew up in a home which was as fanatically athiest as some are in their religions...since breaking away from this and exploring spiritual things I have had many positive experiences and good feelings as a result, but at times I fear that perhaps as my father would say I am simply too weak to accept the reality of a purely physical and meaningless universe, and then I become depressed. I'm not sure what I am hoping will come of this (I hope not excessive conversion attempts---one thing I do believe is that people must find their *own* path), but perhaps some support and guidance. How do you maintain a belief in things you can't prove or measure?
