It seems that no matter how successful I am in life (family, career, social, money, etc...) it doesn't matter to my mother......her comment is always something like "When are you going to do something about the truth".
I get so agrivated that I want to scream!! I have explained to her that I no longer believe the governing body to be directed by God - she knows I don't believe it is the truth any longer - yet every few months she says "When are you going to do something about your life" - it's like she's talking to a recovering drug addict just coming out of rehab with no job and nowhere to live.....do something about your life..........she just doesn't get it. I HAVE done something about my life - I ESCAPED and started to actually LIVE my life.
I spent last weekend with her - it was the 1 yr anniversary of my dad's passing so my son and I took her out of town to keep her mind off of things. Everytime I asked how so and so is doing it was either (1) they're great, they're really busy in the ministry and blah blah blah, or (2) they dropped out of the truth and they're not doing anything (regardless of the fact that they may be completing a master's degree in college - working on a cure for cancer - or have just received the nobel peace prize) - they're not doing anything
It bothers me because I know no matter how good I do in life, no matter how much I help her (and I will regardless of all things), no matter what.......in the eyes of all my family I am a LOSER because I don't want to be a witness any longer. I'm equal to a homeless, desolate, streetwalker - just a LOSER until I come back to the truth.
GAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDSSSSSSSS sometimes it just really p*sses me off!!
