I learned about Shiism from a young age and I was never taught about the Quran and Ahlul Bayt. I was only 16 years old and my house hold was Sunni so when I told my family they started yelling at me. I got uncomfortable and ever since that experience i’ve changed. I became insecure, lonely, sad and isolated. I would put on a fake personality in front of my friends and family. It is so severe to the point where I lost my friends because I wouldn’t want to talk and I would become isolated. I obviously finished high school, college but I’m so isolated that I just stay in my room most of the day. I love Allah and Ahlulbayt. The problem is that I was never able to practice what they taught, in fact, I don’t know what those practices are. I know what the Quran is. I was never given guidance when I figured out the truth of the Ahlulbayt. All I was given was negativity which discouraged me and put me in a state of isolation that drove me away from societal obligations.

You should introduce yourself to the Ahlulbayt and to the followers of the Ahlulbayt. If you are able to interact with fellow Shia, I would recommend you do that. Believers are encouraged to be together.
