I know that it's a tough topic to talk about but I wanted to ask a question to see if someone could give me some good advice on this. I won't share my views just in case someone is offended by it and so I don't bring up any debate on here. Anyways so here's my situation. I'm a 17 year old kid with only one more semester of high school left. I currently live with my mom and step-dad. For a couple of years now I've been a different religion from them and I know from experience that if I told them about my little conversion I feel like they would lose most of their respect for me and the family would frown upon me. Both my mom and dad's sides of my family are all the same religion and anyone who isn't of that religion is more or less frowned upon, or begged to convert back. I haven't told anyone except for my step-brother, who is atheist along his mom and sister. He understands my situation completely and isn't really sure what I should do. I've felt for the longest time that I should tell both sides of my family starting with my parents. I know neither side would take it well though I feel it needs to be done. My mom's side of the family has threatened to kick me out of the house a couple of times, over a few trivial matters. and I have college level classes I'm taking at school. I can't afford that. Though at the same time everyone wants an open relationship from me. I could never convert back because the religion I have now has helped me so much and has actually made me a better person. I feel bad not telling them about it, though at the same time I feel like I might put my future on the line if I were to say something now. It stresses me out a good bit at times so I was wondering what your inputs would be.
P.S. Sorry if this all has a bad structure to it. I tried writing as everything came to me so it might seem a bit sloppy. Anyways I appreciate any help I could get, and thanks in advance for any comments.
