Questioning Your Own Beliefs

One thing I've always been sure of is my beliefs. I will listen and respect others and their views, of course, but I've never doubted my own beliefs - until recently.

I don't know if this is a normal part of life or if it's just my nature to question everything I know, but its really starting to stress me out. Growing up, I was a hardcore atheist, and don't get me wrong, I still am, I still don't believe in God, but there are things that make me question it and it's freaking me out. 

I don't want this post to be me debating religion and my entire belief system, it's just a bit of a word dump. I'm not about to run off and become a devout Christian (but it's cool if you are), my beliefs were just a big part of my self-identity so I feel like I'm losing a part of myself.

I know this all sounds like a very dramatic word dump, but I can't be the only person who has questioned everything they know, right? If you have, how have you survived it without having some sort of existential crisis? Help a gal out, please.
