I have a bit of a dilemma. I have been doing a lot of soul searching since I was about 12. I am now 18, and I still don't know what I believe. I'm not sure if I should have made a decision by now. I believe in religion, I do. I believe it's a wonderful thing and I believe that when embraced it can make life that much easier. However, I feel like with the amount of time and energy, and the lack of real decision making, I'm not getting what I should out of it. Sure, I would love to believe in God. However the amount of scientific theory and fact that has been thrown at me makes me wonder. It makes me think. It makes me doubt. My question is this. Should I just give up for now and maybe take a break? Or should I keep pursuing my goal of finding my true belief? Should I have made a decision by now? Or is it completely acceptable to spend half of my life trying to figure it out? Opinions please.
