so I’ve posted before about sometimes not being to go to mass during sports tournaments. my parents are the ones who coach the team so I tried to bring it up with them. I want to try to make a more genuine effort this year. the problem is that they got really mad, said I was selfish and I wasn’t allowed to leave the team and goo off by myself. and that if I started doing that, then everyone would just go do their own thing too.
there are other issues too, sometimes scheduling is very difficult. plus it’s really ahrd for me to get around a new city. since I’m visually impaired, I can’t exactly just look at a map or find a church building very easily. plus sometimes weather issues or taxis are unavailable.
I don’t know what to do anymore. I really don’t like missing mass. I guess I could get dispensed but I feel like it’s a poor excuse. it’s just sports, I mean it does supply some income for me so I guess it’s kind of like working.
any ideas? I talked about quitting and they said I wasn’t committed to anything and they’re just really angry. my dad is technically catholic but he just doesn’t understand this. and my mom says I’m a bad example and inflexible on this and I’m the reason that she doesn’t want to get baptized and that beliving in god is not just about going to church. and how she’s a better person than me despite not being Christian.
I don’t know what to do. they also threatened to kick me out if I quit the team which I can’t afford to have happen right now.
