Sorry for the darker comic this week. The first half of the week has been... Well, much like this a lot of the time. I can't have my family try to recruit me to one side or the other of this silly drama-llama they're stuck in back home. Not if I want to keep my sanity. And when I drew this I was almost to a breaking point.
But conflicts like this aren't always external. Until recently I'd been having some serious internal conflicts with myself - doubts trying to crowd out my faith, whether to stick with following my dreams or being "practical" and preparing for law school, etc. In either case, be the bickering around us internal or external, it can all just jumble up together into incomprehensible noise and chatter if you aren't careful to stand your ground or you don't know what position to have on an issue at all.
... Okay, I'm done now. That wasn't much of an explanation, but I figured I owed you guys some context. I'm fine now, as things seem to have cooled down/I haven't heard from my family back home very much in the past couple of days.
