Born into a Catholic family and having ears "well tuned" to hearing God's word, I fell into anxiety and panic at the age of 30. Wanting, so, to live according to God's "perfect" will and plan for me, I followed the "letter of the law" too closely . . . and the "letter of His Spirit" too distantly (I would say). Though my, God given, personality (as described by my husband) is "fluffy and unconventional", my church (Catholic) is on the opposite end of the spectrum . . . NOT fluffy and VERY conventional. (Most of my friends left the church for this reason. . . too RIGID)
