Y'all, my husband is still a worship pastor, tho we would prefer to be part of a more inclusive community. Financially & as far as work load goes, he has it pretty good, so he doesn't really want to leave. but I hate it. I would prefer to live a more authentic life, but that could get him fired. How do I cope with having to be careful what I say? Can s/1 help me understand how it's okay to keep "supporting" this institution? I'm an Enneagram 1 & really struggle with feeling I'm being fake.

@LiveYourValues I don't have any answers because I'm going through a similar thing myself, only I'm the one in the community that is supporting me financially but moving further and further away from the values I'm coming to hold as critical (or I'm moving further away; at any rate, we're diverging fast).

So strength for the road ahead. And listen to the weariness in your soul and find ways to soothe it. Until you're able to move, that's probably the best way to start staying sane.
