This is not how we brought you up


How do we develop independence from our families? How do we manage their expectations?

Religion is something that was never a choice for me. With a strong Christian background within my family, going it would mean to go against the closest ones. This ambivalence I’m struggling with brings me to fundamental frustration. Escaping is no solution. Can we find a way that works for both sides? Can our differences be mutually accepted?

As my family becomes part of the stage, I follow their lessons but on my own terms.
