I explained something to my mom today because it had been really weighing heavily on me and she got mad after she promised she wouldn't. It feels like I'm back in high school and never wanting to tell her things again.
Anxiety (Including GAD)
What was it you talked to her about? Was it related to your relationship with her? Because if so, I can understand why she would get upset. She shouldn’t have, but I can understand.
It had to do with my beliefs on religion. She said I'm an adult and can make my choices but she is unhappy and I'm like bro. I just spilled all my religious trauma to you and you still expect me to believe like you do?
i hear you and see you. i’ve got a ton of religious trauma as well and totally understand where you’re coming from. my family still wants me to worship like they do and i get it, it’s hard. and you don’t have to. nobody can make you. it will get easier.
I definitely understand the struggle. I grew up going to church but never really believed because of how traumatic my life was. And basically my whole family is religious, so what I do is avoid talking about it with them. And if it does come up, I try to say as little as possible and use neutral language. If you want to talk to someone about your trauma, a therapist is definitely the way to go because they’re unbiased and non-judgmental. Your mom seems to be the opposite.
