Default Seeking knowledge and understanding

My story is long (as are most). To keep it short, I was raised religious and conservative, gave that up, and am now trying to come to terms with understanding the viewpoints I carry with me. What is part of my actual being and what is conditioning I was raised with?

Two big topics for me currently are relationships and sexuality. My current partner is interested in polyamory. We have dabbled in it some. I have hang-ups from my upbringing that he doesn't have. I also just have a very different sexuality than he does, one I don't entirely understand, as it wasn't something that was safe for me to explore until I left conservative religion several years ago in my early/mid twenties. Sometimes that makes things difficult. So I'm here to come to learn and understand more about myself from sharing my experiences, thoughts, and feelings and listening to what others have to say. I'm also here to learn more about others in their experiences. Somehow I'll get this thing figured out.

Greetings Cbearicus,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

I, too, was raised religious and conservative, and gave that up, though not until my late-30's, so I give you more credit in that regard. It is hard to make one's way out of the maze of conditioning; believe me I know. I hope we'll be able to be of some help to you here.
