I finally told my parents I left Christianity

I left the church several years ago. I’ve avoided telling my parents because I didn’t want to hurt them or cause them anxiety about me going to hell. I knew they’d be fine with it, in the sense that they weren’t going to disown me or get mad. They’re very good people and I know they’ll love me no matter what. I just didn’t want to add that mental and emotional burden to their lives. Anyway, I was having lunch with them yesterday, and my mom asked me quite directly where I was at spiritually. I wasn’t going to lie to her face, so I told her I am no longer a Christian and now identify as a Noahide. Unsurprisingly, they had no idea what that meant, but they told me they still loved me and that it wasn’t a big deal.

I’m not sure exactly what the point of this post is. I guess I just needed to tell somebody about it. Thanks for listening
