RE: Ranting corner
My rant: My dad came by to "visit" me and my wife. My mom took my wife out to hang out and have a girls day out. My dad conveniently stayed behind to try and convince me that I was a selfish person for being an atheist and that it makes me rude for not having a problem with there being no afterlife. I was a bit caught off guard by this because they've been pretty cool about stuff lately. I think more than anything, it bothers him that I'm comfortable with where I'm at in how I see the world and he is afraid of death like crazy after his heart attack.

"Well people need hope" he said... and I said people can have that without religion. The conversation ended up "So that's it... there's no convincing you... I mean, I don't want to force my beliefs on you. But you're missing out on a lot." and I just said... "That's it. Yes, I'm an atheist. I'm not going to change my stance on things just because it makes you uncomfortable, I can't do that. I am who I am. I hope you can accept that."

So frustrating. My mom apparently talked to my wife about it too, only to be shocked that she said the same thing... that she is too haha.

I'm not sure what bothers them more.. the fact that I simply don't see things the same as them? Or that I am COMFORTABLE with the fact that I don't and am ridiculously happy in my life without it.

Because I'm a teenage girl and I obviously have a lot to rant about but I'm not going to be annoying by posting tens of billions of separate threadies about HOW I CAN'T TALK TO BOYS HOLY CRAP ARE THEY MACHINES HOW DO YOU COMPREHEND THEM HOW DO YOU GET THEM TO LIKE YOU DO YOU HAVE TO KNOW MAGIC TRICKS OR

I just want someone to eat food, get diabetes, watching James and the Giant Peach and play xbox with.

PM me if you want Great Uncle Chas to give you tough advice.
