“Do you push your religion on to your child?”
Hell no. There is no way I would ever make my daughter follow in my footsteps. Sure, some people may argue that I am. By exposing her to my religion by incorporating small things into our everyday life, I could be influencing her towards my personal beliefs.
If that is something you agree with, I’d like to ask you this. What kind of religious practices go on in your home? Do you pray before every meal and every night before bed? Do you go to church? Anything else that relates to your religion? If you answered yes, than I must say. You are pushing your religion on to your child.
I think it is absolutely ridiculous, judging someone by their religion. Why should you shame someone for how they cope with loss or how they deal with everyday struggles?
Back on to the subject of my child. If she came to me and told me she wanted to learn about another religion, guess who is going to make sure she gets the right information about it. Me. I love religion. I think everyone should have something that they believe in. From the time I was 14, all the way up until just a few months ago, I was an atheist. And I would never admit it to anyone, but I wanted to connect with a religion because I missed the feeling of community and love and strength I pulled from it before I lost my faith. It was heartbreaking and a long story of why I fell from the LDS Church (a post for another time), but the reasons will always be there, and there is no way I could ever personally go back. But I would never stop someone else from believing in them.
Religion is such a personal thing. And every single person has the right to believe in what they want.
“What are you going to do after you finish?”
Man, that is such a good question. Hopefully, I will find a job that I can work at for awhile. I want to eventually open my own business. I don’t have any concrete plans as of yet, but hopefully soon. I have not really thought about anything solid to do after school. Which I should.
“What is your relationship status?”
Complicated. Extremely complicated.
“Did you always want to be a mom?”
Yes. Yes, I did. Ever since I could remember. Babies were the best, I had 3 younger brothers that I loved to help with. One of them, I basically raised myself. Which I hate telling people, because I didn’t realize until I got older, that people thought my parents pawned off the responsibility to me because they were too busy. Which is SO NOT TRUE. I practically raised my youngest brother because I wanted to. I wanted to do everything for my younger brother. And my mom, seeing no harm in letting big sister help with baby brother, let me. But my parents were amazing, for the most part. There is some more to it than that, but again. A post for another time.
“What do you consider to be your greatest strength? What about weakness?”
Weakness, I can definitely answer right off the bat.
I constantly crave attention. Like, there are so many things that go wrong with this. I am fully aware that I am selfish as all hell when it comes to attention. But I know I’m the worst at giving it, too. Which is a horrible combination. The important thing, I think, is that I realize it and I am doing my best to take the steps to fix it.
Strength, on the other hand, is something that most people consider to be very simple.
You give me a topic about almost anything, and I will do my best to find out everything I can about it. Take, for example, when I learned about Wicca. I found it on tumblr (great resource for sharing and finding new information) and probably reblogged about 100 things. I like having information at my fingertips.
Knowledge is Power!!
“What is one thing you are always thankful for?”
My wonderful friends and family. I would not be the person I am today without their love and support.
If you see a question that is not here, feel free to ask me!
