Pentacle - June 9th 2017, 06:55 PM

So i wear a pentacle and for a while i wore it under my shirt because i didn't want to deal with my family and there super closed mindedness. Recently i decided to stop hiding it though because my faith isn't something in ashamed of. Well the comments just don't stop. Last night my mother walked around the house saying that im a devil worshiper and that i wear the symbol of satan around my neck. I explained my non- belief of satan and explained that he is a figure head of the judeochristain beliefs and the two aren't connected. I even pulled up the christian origin of the penatcle and showed her that it doesn't even repesent satan to Christians and she still kept insisting im a Satanist. I just want the comments to stop so she told me to go back to hiding it ajd i don't think i should have to. Any insight on how to handle this is appreciated.




I don't care if the world knows what my secrets are

Hey Trish, I'm sorry that you're having to deal with this. Sometimes when it comes to dealing with difficult people, the best thing to do is either ignore them, do what you have to do to avoid setting them off, or avoid them. I agree that you shouldn't have to hide your faith just because your family disagrees with it. At the same time, is standing firm and allowing it to show worth putting up with these comments? Life would be so much easier if we could just make the difficult person stop doing whatever annoys or offends us, but unfortunately, in most cases, we can't. If your mother refuses to accept your beliefs and wants to continue making comments like this in the face of evidence that she's wrong, chances are she's not going to change it.
