When you convert to another denomination or faith how does it affect your relationship with your family?
It depends on what religion it is, and whether or not your family have strong beliefs about it. I have seen many people converted to my religion, and some families embrace it, some join the church in addition to the original convert, some are hostile but polite, and some disown their children.
I think that you have to be true to God and to what you believe, no matter the consequences... but it is a hard thing to see families so bitter over a person's choices sometimes.
If your family is athiest, you might get more of a battle, or if your family has heard a lot of bad things about a certain religion or group. Hopefully most families will accept your right to choose, and celebrate the fact that you are happy with your relationship with God. But... it won't happen in every case, definitely. There are so many people out there dedicated to being ANTI-someone else's belief rather than being PRO-whatever they believe in, that you just don't know how others will react, except as far as you can predict, knowing your family. ... And even then you can't always know. I have seem some people brace themselves, thinking that their families would go crazy, and actually they were pleasant and accepting. :)
I have family members that do not share my faith, either by having a different religion, or no religion at all. My wife has the same situation among her family members. I have also seen this among my fellow JW's.
One issue that we find that comes up is misunderstanding about our religion. Once it is that they realize that once we become one of JW's, we are still basically the same person, minus the foul language, and hopefully whatever other bad habits we may have had, then they generally are ok.
An interpersonal relationship is an affiliation or association between two or more people and can be in the workplace or personal life. Perception and expression can affect the relationship because everyone has different ideas but the differences can make the relationship stronger when people respect another person's right to their own perceptions and how they express their opinions.
Lying, if discovered, will usually affect trust within a relationship. This will usually affect other elements, such as intimacy. However, depending upon the severity of the lie and its intended consequences, trust can be maintained and the relationship can be unaffected, providing the decieved partner feels the lie was necessary or unimportant.
Discussing it may not affect your relationship with your peers but it is a touchy subject. You may find that some of your peers do not share the same political beliefs as you and it could cause trouble in you work place. On the same note talking about religion is another topic that should be avoided.
Well the closeness of you and your child's relationship can affect their behavior in a good or bad way.If you and your child have a mild relationship then most likely they are not getting the attention that they need therefore they will think that will get attention by acting up.If you and your child have a close relationship then most likely they will get their proper attention and won't crave it so much in public.
