"I like your quote; it reminds me of a rabbinical quote about early Christianity. We're not talking about an ideology here, though.  We're talking about an aunt.  Best not to confuse the idiosyncratic views and needs of people…"

"First of all, your not dead, nor dying. There are a couple of ways to handle a situation like yours (as far as I can see, anyway). First: reject the notion of pretending to be someone different to who you really are. Your aunt is (presumably) a…"

"I have no sage advice to offer.  I can only describe my experiences in similar situations.  I have never suffered any sort of negative repercussions by being honest; at least none that caused me to lose any sleep.   I have had a…"

"Plus you do have to think of your family after all, and I think they've got a point that they don't want to upset her.  They love her presumably.  She's harmless, right?  She just wants you to take part in some…"

"If you've got to stay, then just don't stress.  Refuse to get stressed out.  Let it all wash over you.  Find a philosophical way to accept her and her nonsense for who she is.  She means well after all, or perhaps…"

"Tell her that you live your life your way and expect that to be respected. If she wants to pray for your soul, welcome her to knock herself out, but you're not going to pray until/unless it's YOUR idea to do so. You don't even have to…"

Jake LaFort replied to Bouncy Edhel's discussion 'I Think I'm Dead... Advice?'
"I say be yourself. There is no reluctance on her part to impose so you are entitled to avoid having to conceal your views. The people around you will likely respect you for your integrity and guts. But it is easy for me to say."

"She gets here tomorrow. Sigh. Honestly, I feel like just being like, "You know what? No. I'm not going to go to church and I'm not going to pray everywhere we go." But I'm still debating whether to do that or not. Honestly,…"

Pope Beanie replied to Bouncy Edhel's discussion 'I Think I'm Dead... Advice?'
"But you still have a right to hold your ground and just say no, if you wish. I was watching a BBC thing today about tolerance vs intolerance. It made me think up a quote (for me, at least) to remember: Any ideology too weak to allow criticism of…"
