I am a female in my 30s and live with my parents. I try my best to be respectful to them, but it is a struggle because to them, I am still a child and they treat me as such. I am frustrated and often feel disrespected for needing to ask permission for going anywhere. Moving out on my own is not an option as they made it clear that though we live in America, we still abide by the Egyptian traditions.
I am truly struggling with Love and BEARING WITH MY PARENTS. I am the worst kid ever by not following the commandments, but my parents always discourage me so much to the point that I lose hope (which is the state I am in right now). I felt God trying to work within me but I departed from Him and continued with my frustration. Right now, I do not feel God anymore and I have all these mixed feelings ranging from never serving at church again to other great negative thoughts. I really want peace and to be able to have the love, humility, and patience of the Lord. What shall I do? I truly feel lonely with no help and with no friends to talk to. Please answer.
Is there anywhere in the Holy Bible, where a parent was wrong and was therefore not to be obeyed by their children? How would you advise someone whose parent is using the Holy Bible in a threatening manner in order to procure their kids' obedience to them?
