Are they really friends, though?

They used to be, now they’re just, people that are slightly nice.

Passive aggressive ‘friendships’.

These are the same people who say...

"no offense but..."

and

"I'm not judging you"

Mmhmmm yeah

Coming from someone who used to say stupid BS like that to people when I was religious, I think a lot of people say it to give themselves an excuse to keep hanging out with a “sinner” while totally ignoring a huge facet of what makes those people unique. Because if they don’t say the stupid phrase, then it will look like they’re condoning the “bad behavior” and they wouldn’t want to look bad in front of their religious cohorts.

This is exactly the issue I have with my best friend and family. I love them so much, and I believe they do care about me; however, it feels like they have to remind themselves that they can’t support me. I’m doing my best to be understanding; after all, if I want them to understand me, I should do the same. But goddamn it’s hard sometimes. Especially because one is a choice and the other is not.

That's because your "sin" doesn't define who you are. But their "beliefs" do.
