On the theme of some of the posts here, I want to update you all on my situation. I couldn't bear the weight of it anymore so I told them on April the 1st so I could safely say April Fools if they over-reacted. This was also purposely done before this years ramadan because I really hate that tradition.
They kind of just started crying and referencing some apostasy thing. I can barely look into my parents eye anymore, so I have left home. It was a tough process and nothing violent came of it.
It's a weight off my shoulders and I can continue to work on IB now. I will fix relationships with my parents after IB. I suggest you all to consider renouncing if the weight is too much for you to bear. I have a clear head now and I can study in peace.
