The moment I accepted Christ in my life, I felt wonderful. After a few weeks I didn't feel the same. I would just have my mood swings and hate everyone and everything and just hate God.
I made a decision that damaged my relationship with God. I stopped believing in Him. Yes, I turned from a Christian to an atheist. It was the worst decision in my life. My grades started falling apart, I would curse and be rude, and I was just a mess.
But every time I get scared, I always called on Him. I was tired of not having someone to lean on. So I turned back to my Christian faith. Now I may still be weak in some areas, but I still feel strong in Christ.
