It has been 4 years since my political conversion and I’ve made good progress in life since. The one thing that has confused me is how to move forward with familial relationships and hoped anyone had some advice.
I tried to make it work for a few months, but I’ve mostly cut family out of my life. Liberal parents and grandparents (now deceased) I cut off contact with. Mostly I’ve only spoken to a conservative uncle, but I think he may be telling family members about my life even though I’ve cut them out. So I plan on removing him as well.
My kids are tougher, because they are young. But they continue to be around a liberal ideology and considering their mother has refused to convert, I’ve had to cut them out of my life as well, which is saddening.
Has anyone had luck navigating these relationships. I tried to put their sins aside for a funeral, but I made the comment that my grandfather was in hell because he was a liberal and I was asked to leave, even though I was right. So I haven’t tried since.
