from early childhood I was raised as a fundamental Christian as I was raised as a young earth creationist earth is only 6000 years old. (which made science class difficult which is a subject I did well in) and my dad was teaching me from bible if you believe in evolution Satan has tempted and you will be given over to him, and your heart will be hardened and as you believed in Jesus you will burn even more as you rejected him and he showed me the passages from the bible. so this made me a very anxious and nervous child and I feel ruined the opportunity of my learning the social skills I needed to develop as kid as i really struggled to socialise as i thought i have to be carful what i think and do. I tried to question this a child it if it was true but I was scared that I was losing my faith and that I would be given over.
it has taken me to the age of 30 years but after losing the belief I have to come to the terms I wasted the best years of my life which makes me go through a wide range of emotions anger, rage, sadness, deep lioness, loss of identity and who I was and do not know who I am anymore. depressed, Just really pissed off that it took me this long to get to this stage and that I am a damaged person.
I am trying to learn to socialise finding difficult as everyone else is ahead of me. my parents say your not mentally ill just deal with it everyone has there issues, and my mother uses a lot of shaming language to make me feel bad. they are really negative people and only see the negative side of things. for example if something is only the telly he will always make negatives consending remarks, gets agry and raises his voice over the smallest thing for example using to much foil etc. and ealier to day he was going to the rubbish tip and was getting angry had to take some stuff through. they are toxic people.
I really hate feeling like this I have been through some quite traumatic experiences from a relationship that put me in great depression that, and I was very scared as a kid that I was going to the lake of fire of being told if I

Almost everyone on the planet was raised with a belief or two that they later outgrew... take some comfort in that.
Gaining your own insights, beliefs and emotions is part of becoming a grown man/woman. It's not always a fun transition, but becoming your own person is exciting. And terribly necessary.
Do yourself a favor and put some distance between you and your parents. Get out a little. Even if that just means spending more time outdoors in nature. That should give you some much-needed perspective. Hope things get better for you soon!1
