Nut allergy in comparison to my religion allergy
This explains what I have been going through.
Quote:The allergy is the best way to describe the current issues I have been going through.



For
going back to religion, the answer is no. The best comparisons to what I are going through is that I have a toxic reaction to it.




Imagine that I was once able to eat nuts, being fine and all, loving
the taste and the nutrients it provided to suddenly '1 cashew and my
life is over'.



The nut may have provided good nutrients to my
body before, may look good, I remember it having tasted so good, but
suddenly it's only good for people without my allergy.




Take religion, and that's the cashew in my situation.



My view of the universe has changed over time, and my mind will not and cannot conform to religious ideologies.



Someone
who doesn't understand what a nut allergy is will be confused. 'How can
that be if it isn't like that for me?' Simple: because the levels of
understanding are different between those who have the allergy and those
who don't.




What I want is a relationship with my family. What I get is a
message of 'Unless you eat the cashew, we cannot have a relationship'.
Thinking the 'cashew' is good for me when in reality it isn't right for
me.




So that's a basic overview of what my situation is. It's very black and white, but it fits the bill.




We can't always have what we want, but we can at least understand how it got to be that way.
This is by far the best peaceful approach to explaining to my folks why I won't and can't go back to religion. It may have already been used, I don't know.

It took me a long time to get to this. The outcome is uncertain, but I'm learning a great deal of who I am! Thumbsup

I would be really sad if I was allergic to nuts. You've inspired me to go get some M&M's with peanuts.
So at least you've had a good influence on one person today. Smile

It's simply a cross allergy. Religion is full of nuts.

It was never implied in the email. That was the hard part - fingers were tempted!

Someone pointed out that cashews are legumes. I knew about peanuts not being nuts. Adjusting my view one subject at a time...



I really don't know if my parents will notice. Undecided If they call me out on
it, it could serve as a good example of my AHA moment with religion. Consider

Joking aside for a second here...I think the toughest part of this won't be deciding what to do, so much as following through with that decision. Knowing what's best isn't too hard to figure out. Doing what's best? Well, that's a different story.

Perhaps not helpful, but I am feeling your pain as best I can sister. Not an easy place to be.


Ok, enough of that. Resume joking.

Thanks, Stark. It's a long road ahead. I don't think I'm going to have to go to Canada's Wonderland anytime soon. Blink
