Religious Decisions and how to Voice Them?
 
 
Hiya, Dementio here.
 
 Last year, I decided to go from being Christian to Atheist because I wanted to keep an open mind.
 
But this year I grew tired of not knowing what I believe in and I wanted to seek answers. I have a good friend who invited me to talk to his church's minister. Being open minded and all, I agreed to go. I thought what the minister was saying was really interesting. So I've been trying to learn more about their religion, but I've been doing it under the radar of my family. My friend invited me to go to church with her sometimes, and I want to, so I think it's about time my family knew.
 
But here are the problems; first off, I don't want them to think that I've been brainwashed. I want them to know that this is my choice; I'm putting a lot of research into it, and not jumping in head-first.
 
 Now here's the super tricky part. My mom thinks that my friend and I are dating. We're not dating, but she thinks we are because we went to the Prom together and we spend a lot of time together. Little does she know that we mostly spend time together when he's inviting me to her church-based events so that I can learn more. Plus, my mom kind of thinks I date all my friends that are girls. I don't want my mom to think that she's forcing this upon me, because she's not. She told me very clearly that I can walk out on the religion at any time, no hard feelings.
 
 Most of all, I'm worried that my mom will think I'm only looking into this religion to impress her. I would never do that, even if I did want to think of her as more than a friend. I'm looking into the religion because it's offering me the guidance I've been seeking.
 
 
So here's my predicament .... 
How would I tell my mother about my decision, if she's prejudice about every choice I've made? I'm stumped, and I need some decent advice.. 

I Try to be Something I'm Not,
Just to Make you Smile.
I Try to make you Laugh,
Even When I'm in Pain.
I Try to Make you Happy,
By Lying to Myself …

AnD nOw I've Snapped.

Wow. Try telling her everything you just wrote here. You know exactly what she's gonna think and say so tell her something like this: ''No mom those are not my intentions. I'm doing this because-'' and then say exactly what you wrote. You know? Hopefully she'll understand smile

.. Well.. That's easier said than done. If you had the chance to meet my mother, you would understand my predicament. She's uptight, judgemental, and plain.. Rude, honestly.
I appreciate the incentive in your actions, but.. It seems I don't have much of a choice than to follow your advice, if I want to get this off my chest. 
I guess I just needed some motivation.
