You should only consider changing religions or becoming involved in a religion for someone you love if you truly have a genuine interest in that religion.
You shouldn’t change religions or become involved in it simply because you are trying to appease the one you love or trying to look good in their eyes.
You should be sincere about your intention and be sure that it is something you truly believe.
If you truly see and feel the value in the religion and genuinely believe that the religion will have a positive effect in your life, then and only then should you make this change.
People will often change or become involved in a religion of the person they love thinking that they are indeed all in. They typically align the person they love with the religion.
Their thoughts tell them that since they attribute so many good feelings to this person that they love, the religion that this person follows must have the same attributes.
Hence, they mistakenly connect the two together and believe that they should change religions because it will make them feel good.
This is erroneous.
It is also dangerous.
They are mentally misleading themselves. If you are not truly interested in the religion, you will be an act. An act that this person you love or their friends and family will ultimately see through.
This will put you in a very precarious position and may even jeopardize the relationship that you have with this person you love.
Your goal should be to share an honest and true connection with this person you love.
If you truly don’t feel much of a connection to this person’s religion, you shouldn’t pretend that you do.
You should always be honest.
All that does is lead you on a path of deception and ultimate dissatisfaction. You end up wasting your time and emotions.
If you are currently in a healthy relationship with this person that you love, they shouldn’t have a problem accepting you for who you are no matter what you believe.
If you feel that changing religions or getting involved in this person’s religion is necessary in order to get their approval, you are not with the right person for you.
You shouldn’t do something that doesn’t agree with you.
Doing something that doesn’t agree with you will only make you wonder whether you made the right decision eventually.
You may initially make yourself believe that you did but eventually the real thinking sets in and you realize that you shouldn’t have done it.
Hence, stay true to what feels right to your core and who you know yourself to be.
