Dear one, You know that the parents of Guru Nanak Dev ji did not support his spiritual lifestyle and pursuits.

You must face this challenge and sounds like you are doing it quite well. You may be a dependent now, but you have your own life to lead at some point. Guru has gifted you with a deep longing for Wahe Guru.

Feel encouraged and continue to discuss with your parents. But, I would reccomend your getting the support of a family member who understands and can speak in support for you with your parents.

Keep up> You are beautiful and DIvine. You will be fine.
