Clashes with religious people.
Religion is something that effects the concept of "morals" and it is also a huge part of traditions. Although I am not directly affected by my religion, it is an important part of social education in Turkey therefore it would not be correct to say that I'm completely unaffected.
I just feel some kind of energy that affects me according to how I feel.

Almost all of my friends and my boyfriend are muslim. So, sometimes conflicts emerge among us.

Not in a single heartbeat, I am living my own life. There is no time-place to think about religion in my life.
It does not, other than monthly attacks of terror.
If I feel believing, I start to behave on the way which my religion says or I am confused about Should I do what my religion say or should I do my rights.

It shapes my whole life. I do anything according to my religion.
