Hi Clementine_, It's understandable that you want to share things with your family, and let them know the real you. But, you have to consider the outcomes that may come if you come out. I think you should take a long think, about, the possible outcomes and whether you could handle them. Then, make your decision. Likewise, it's important I feel to look at where you are. Are you independent? Are you living at home. Because, if you're dependant, and your parents turn hostile,then you may have a bad time.
If you feel that you are in a good position to tell them, then I'd say, approach with caution, and tailor your coming out, to how you think your parents would best react/ the easiest way for them to hear. If they don't take it well then, perhaps they need time to realise that you're still the same child, but just more you. If they refuse to accept you, then their loss, you are still fantastic and wonderful, and life shouldn't end because of ignorance and meanness.
Sorry if I've not been helpful or you feel that I'm scaremongering- i'm not trying to do so, but I think it's important to have a perspective of what could happen.
Anyway, best of wishes on your journey and I hope everything turns out ok for you.
stay safe.Last edited by anonymouspie227; 27-03-2013 at 01:39.
