I know someone in my family who doesn’t understand my spiritual needs…I try to share this without shoving anything but it’s as though it doesn’t matter for that person…So I end up not talking about it at all and try to talk about other things that we have in common…Why is this important? Well, I live far way from my home and am over 40 years old now so I can lead my life…A family member doesn’t seem to understand my happiness overseas. I do have beliefs and feel that God is wanting me to teach overseas…No matter how much I try to show my happiness or my passion for the work I do both in the church and in my field of work, it doesn’t seem to impress this family member…What spiritual strategies can I use to avoid problems with this person when it concerns me and my life abroad…? How can I maintain my family love and my love for my work out here? I’m using my own judgment but is there a book that someone can recommend about living abroad and keeping a family happy…a religious book?
