What do you think about other people's interest in your religion or lack there of?
The “why can’t you just be like me” question.
I recently outed myself as an atheist to my fundamentalist mother and it broke her heart. What do you think about other people’s needs for you to think a certain way, and their desire for and belief that you could just change your mind and be like them? Especially in in situations where by thinking in your own way you let them down. How does that effect your unfavorable belief/non beliefs or the way you present them?
You can certainly apply this to any sort of thinking or any issue with you people might think could be ‘fixed’, it just seems to come up an awful lot with religion.
