Homeschooler, if you ever think you’re weird or even abnormal for being homeschooled, stop. You’re not. You’re just different. And different can be a good thing.
Don’t feel like a failure if someone you care about doesn’t listen to your advice or outwardly show appreciation for your concern. Though it may feel like you’re being rejected, you never know what God is doing in his/her heart. Maybe He is using your encouragement so he/she will change. Only that person can make a choice to change. Only God’s work in their heart will make them live differently.
It’s easy to brush off the advice from a friend or the warning from a parent or sibling. It’s easy to feel like you’re being bossed and pushed around to do what you don’t want to do. Sometimes, the thing you don’t want to do is the exact thing you should do.
