Each..and...every...time...I'm around my leftist family, which thankfully is down to once or twice per year now, I literally can feel the energy leaving my body in their presence. Even when I attempt to have a decent time, I come away mentally drained and exhausted that take me days to recover. This has been increasing in severity as their outlandish communist beliefs also increase in severity over the years. I think it is just my brain trying to keep up with processing the nonsense I hear while also restraining myself from acting out, but I do wonder if they are some sort of communist energy vampires on a metaphysical level, and I'm being totally serious, even if they don't know they are doing it, it could just come with the communist package so to speak.

Well done. Nothing worse than being controlled and made to feel guilty. I spent years thinking I was to blame for being abused, then realised it was a satanic lie. Forgave, prayed for my mum and step-dad and got free and happy. Got the chance to reconnect with them years later, treasure the way she said she was grateful I'd forgiven her. God is good.

So do it because Jesus said we should, out of respect and obedience to Him. Or at least ask for the grace to do it. It is important: there is a passage in the Bible about God being hindered in His ability to bless us. Obedience is better than sacrifice, its to benefit us and help us grow.
