How do you tell your family you're traditional?

November 5, 2020

Hi guys, I'm new here.

31 F Single with a bachelor's degree. This past summer I had the bright idea that I was going to make a name for myself by going to law school to become a lawyer and then buy my own condo and eventually get married and have a 2-income marriage blah blah. But within the past couple months I realized that isn't me - it was just a fantasy i created to meet the standards of my ultra-liberal, ultra academia, feminist family. My real dream is to become a wife and stay at home homeschooling mom and once I accepted this I threw my lawyer dream away and have been spending all my extra time cultivating femininity, homemaking, and mom skills.

But today my Dad tried to start a conversation with me about speaking to his law school professor friend and studying for LSATs. I froze. I wanted to tell him I don't want to be a lawyer anymore, but I knew I couldn't tell him that without telling him the whole story, and I knew he wouldn't take it well. My dad is the stereotype of the counter culture hippie activist college student of the 60's who went on to perpetuate liberal propaganda by becoming a college professor in adulthood. My liberal conditioning came from him.

Has anyone else had to deal with coming out as red pilled to their liberal family? How do you suggest I do it? I know my entire family will not take it well.

EDIT: thanks for the responses. it's good to have support from like-minded women. hearing your words affirmed to me that given my goals and values, im on the right track. there were however responses that completely caught me by surprise. encouraging a 31 year old aspiring sahw/m to go into debt by going to law school when she's not passionate about it was not something I'd expect to see in a redpilled wives thread.
