I have a had a very rough childhood and had no one to turn to. At a young age I found readig the bible was my only comfort and I realize that after going through so much pain I gave all my probles to God and have been blessed with everything. Now I sit and wonder why most of this world doesn't believe in God. Why wouldn't everyone want to be as happy as I am b/c I put my faith and trust in him?
If you don't believe in God, then what do you believe?

OK, Imagine you and I go clothes shopping together in the same store and come out with fabulous new (but different) clothes. Does that make my new clothes better than yours? No of course not! It means that my new clothes suit me better and fit me better than yours do and vice versa.
The same goes for religion. What works for you and makes you happy doesn't apply to everyone. I'm an atheist which means that I don't believe in any gods. I'm very happy living my life like this and I can't imagine living it any other way.
So you have to understand that while YOU are happy with your religion, it is NOT for everyone!

I guess I just wondered what someone else turns to when they have been so badly damaged.
I am very sorry for what you have suffered through. One of the few "truths" in life that I think we can all agree on is that everyone needs someone or something to provide us with a soft place to land in troubled times. Some people turn to god, others turn to loved ones, and others turn to people who have experienced similar circumstances. It is all about what is best for you.
