I wasn't sure where to put this thread so if it needs to be moved please do so As some of you already know, I was born into a Christian family and discovered Sikhism through my husband. I had never had a close relationship with Christianity but my being Sikh has drawn the disapproval of my family. Every time I turn around I am being cornered by them into explaining my beliefs or else being guilted into feeling bad for them. I refuse to sacrifice my faith for their peace of mind and I've told them as much but it does not pacify them. Just this morning I overheard my parents discussing my, "eternal damnation" and ways to bring me, "from the dark side to the light side" (has this become Star Wars??). I am as nice and gentle as I can be about this with them but it's honestly weighing on me as a burden. I feel sad that they cannot accept me without judgement but I don't know that I can handle all of this stress they're putting on me anymore. How do you deal with discrimination from your own family?
