Slowly, slowly I leave the church by TAKING ANOTHER BIG CALLING! —Mantisdolphin
I can relate. I was completely out of the church mentally when I accepted my last calling in the stake president's office. I went over there totally intending to say no, I didn't think it was a good idea, busy schedule and whatnot ... and then walked out a counselor in the EQP. I simply could not say no.
This was a big reason resigning was important for me (not saying it's appropriate for you necessarily). Once I'd sent my resignation letter it was so much easier. The stake secretary tried to call me in for an appointment to talk over my decision, and I just said, "President who?" "No, I'm not interested in meeting with him. Thanks anyway."
But hey, you have a new calling, might as well make the most of it. Maybe bless some people that they will live to see the Second Coming or something.
