what should one do when he doesn’t like to be in the same room with a close blood-related family member. More precisely, I avoid to talk with a close family member of my, I avoid to show her my feelings, my successes, my disappointments,… it was not always like this, most of my life I enjoyed her companion.
If you ask me about the stumbling block, it’s the ideology of this family member which I cant stand. (ideology about what is more important for me in my life and what is less important). its not about faith, we both are sincere Catholics. We had many fights in the past about this, and I decided to not to try convincing her into “my opinion” anymore, but instead I just got silent, and as a result, I don’t enjoy anymore in her company and in conversations with her. In fact I don’t like to be in the same room with her anymore.
I don’t know what to do, because this situation doesn’t seem Christian to me.
I do forgive her for having an other opinion (if I can say it so), and I can respect her ideology, but I cant stand it, I don’t feel comfortable with it.
What could I do here?
Is there a Christian way that we gain back the relationship we once had? should I even care?
