I'm from a very religious family but I'm not religious
I'm from a traditional orthodox Brahmin family. They do a lot of religious rituals and God worshipping. Most of my family members openly practice the caste system back in India.
I'm a second generation born in America, Bay Area. I went to an Ivy League and travelled the world. I've dated white American girls, Latinas, blacks, and Asians. I secretly eat meat too and smoke weed and drink alcohol occasionally. From my experiences/mindset, I'm definitely not religious or traditional. I'm at complete odds with my family.
But I find myself in situations where I do these bullshit religious things for my family. They even try to trick me into doing them. For example my family begged me to visit India, and on the next day of my visit they coaxed me into a ritual where they burn a mark on your shoulders with searing iron (samashrayanam). This really hurt and wasted my time.
What do I do to escape this bullshit forever? I just bought a home to move out... But is running away really the solution?
Is anyone else dealing with an overly religious family?
