Here’s one for the masses.
How do y’all feel about salt 'n pepper type couples?
Now don’t give me that “whatever works for you” pre-masticated pablum. This is a serious question. What would YOU do in the face of familial ostracization? How about when mom says, “You’re no child of mine. How can you be so cruel to us?”
Or how about when grandma says “If you continue with this thing it will be the worst thing ever done to this family. We had such high hopes for you.”
Or when dad can’t even speak to his friends without fear that something they say will make him think of you and break down? Or can’t even go out of the house for fear someone will ask him about you and how you’re doing with your life and he’ll be forced to think of the shame you’ve brought upon yourself and the family?
Fun, huh? Welcome to my world.
Would you be true to yourself and your own feelings, or to the family? I’ve made my decision, and I’m happy with it. Now I want to know what you think.
