One thing thats tough about being an atheist is that ...
first of all... Im pretty much alone in my thinking..
secondly.. I love my fam.. but they're just way too religious.
When Im in a bind... I cant get any REAL advice out of them...
Its usually some hollow shyt... like..
"just have faith" or " just believe things will work out"
"Everything happens for a reason".. "just pray on it"
"put it in Gods hands"
NO!! I need something real , tangible , and valid.
and my mom knows my views and she has become a certified holy roller...
so it kind of sucks that I cant discuss any of my issues with her cause
in reality her "godly" advice means not a thing to me.
I wish she would just say.."wow, I dont know what I would do in that situation..hmmm"
then maybe she could ask me questions and i can try to answer them and we could possibly come to a reasonable solution. I mean... it wont be as romantic as the "put it in Gods hands" cliche advice but...
it'll be more valid..
the sad part is that my fam is the one group of people who I do want to discuss real personal issues with..cause when/if I have a problem I just cant talk about that with ANYBODY. No what I mean.?
Its crazy cause as an atheist.. my approach to life has totally changed. I thoroughly try to make the best possible decisions concerning myself at all times... and some of those decisions aren't easy to make on your own..
I dont think a staunch theist understands this mindset at all.
anybody else feel this way?
