Yes, money does buy happiness then maybe my mom wouldn’t be so stressed and sad
I feel I have to mention something that has been a big deal to me since I graduated college. It mostly has to do with my faith in God and my religious views. Free to be is my personal permanent reminder that I believe in God because I want to believe in Him and not because I was forced to from my mother or church members. I want to go to church because I want to go to church. I want to sleep in on the sabbath because I want to. I want to listen to christian music because I want to not because someone else told me to.
I feel that with most young adults they are pressured by their parents and or guardians to believe a certain way instead of their own. I understand that parents want the best for us and worry about their kids. And that is cool BUT I am so sick of parents pressuring their college aged/grown adult to believing their way. I am grateful that I was brought up with christian views but then I became angry when I was forced to only see it from the churches point of view instead of digging deeper, searching and asking questions for myself
I was held on a pedastool (still think I am) and became very afraid of every thing I did because I thought whatever I did wrong God would hate me. And if I missed church then he will hate me. And that is not the case. It took a very long time for me to realize that I should not be afraid of God.
I am a grown woman and it’s nice to go to church because I want to go. I like making my own life decisions and some mistakes because I know I will learn from them and that God loves me no matter what. I’m not trying to rebel nor do I plan to act wild and do insane things.But the point that I wanted to make was that it feels freeing loving God because I want to love God. Getting my tattoo because I wanted to get it. Also feels good doing what I want to do and worrying about my own salvation instead of others.
Just love God for yourself, do right because you want to not because you are forced.
