One of my greatest pleasures is watching you guys be vulnerable. That shows incredible strength.
My next greatest pleasure is watching you guys as a community gather around each other’s vulnerability with such gentleness, wisdom and care.
This thread started by Gerrard, “Best Attempt at Explaining Personal Situation” articulates many of our struggles. It’s about his mom.
I love Agnostic Believer’s response:
“I think it’s also important to remember to let your mother know she did a good job (if that is the case) of raising you. A lot of time parents think when their child “strays” it reflects badly on them. But these are your beliefs and interests now and nothing she does will stop that. Tell her you are a grown up and can make your own decisions.”
