I have thought it over and I think that the past is the past, we should forgive and forget. I do disagree with the way you were brought up, with the whole religious environment and people, but that's know you are. I have no right to comment on it. I'm my own self, I don't believe, but friendship isn't about beliefs and preaching them.
I'm willing to be your friend if you promise not to preach your beliefs to me and not to do anything that is related to your religion with me. I have classmates from all kinds of different religions but we work and learn in harmony. Nobody is preaching to no one. That's how it should be. Your beliefs is your own.
Regarding your friend's (I shall not name) post on your blog: I think it is an insult to non-believers. Whoever said that "those unbelievers are dumb and aren't smart enough to see the truth". What kind of rubbish is this? I strongly suggest that your friend show more respect for people of other religions with other beliefs. Who does he think he is to say such insulting things.
Atina, I honestly don't care who you mix with and talk to, just please don't become like that. Don't become so obsessed with your own beliefs please. You are a nice girl, really talented. Stay pure and truthful to yourself. Believe the real meaning of your religion, every religion is beautiful and sacred. Please don't become so sucked into it like some of the people I've seen on the Web.
Stay truthful to yourself. You can believe whatever you belief in but don't let it pull you down. Don't close up your mind. I think you are a talented pianist with a great personality. Your personality, who you show yourself to be, is what made me become your friend in the first place. Don't ever lose that. Don't be a blind follower. Be a smart one.
That is of course, entirely my own opinion. So what do you say? I rarely forgive people but I like who you are.
