That is really brave! Respect!
I know my family will abandon me if I come out as an atheist, as I used to be a fundamentalist muslim myself and understand their way of thinking. I would have done the same when I used to be a religious brainwashed person. I do love my family a lot, I have moved to a different city so that I can have my freedom while maintaining a relationship with my family.
However, my parents want me to get married soon and are looking for a muslim girl from Pakistan for me... They have made it clear that I don't get a say in the decision-making process... lol
I thought I could be free and have my own life without breaking my parent's heart but it seems to be inevitable. I often get nightmares of the day I come out to my family as an atheist, just thinking about it gives me shivers.
Thanks for your reply! It means a lot, hope I can have the same courage as you one day.
