According to the dictionary, opposition can be defined as "a person or group of people opposing, criticizing, or protesting something, someone, or another group."
Now I will use it in a sentence.
Homeschoolers tend to see a lot of opposition.
If you were a person, like my husband, who didn't really care what others thought, then opposition would be no big deal... If you are a person, like myself, that is bothered greatly by opposition, then opposition is HUGE!
How does one cope with opposition? My husband just ignores it and does what he feels he needs to do. I think about it constantly for days and it causes sleepless nights. I often feel the urge to change because of it.
Obviously, my way isn't always right! I feel deeply convicted that I should homeschool my children. It is something that I feel is NECESSARY. Both my husband and I are in agreement about this. But it still bothers me that some people close to me are so opposed to this. It kinda takes the fun out of it. I feel like I have to hide what we do.
I need to become less bothered by opposition...
