Re: Anxiety

@That_Beef96 Hm, definitely something good to ponder on. I still struggle with not caring what other people think, I just think its good to ask yourself, if not everyone likes me does that make me less of a person? 

 

It's good you don't feel any pressure to have to disclose everything to your dad. Why do you say your mum is the obstacle? 

 

Honestly, I didn't even really need to tell my mum. She's bisexual herself and we grew up always extremely open about sexuality in general so I think one day I was just like 'I think I want to explore with women' and she was like 'okay, let me know how it goes'. My dad wasn't really ever in my life growing up so I'm very lucky to have a really close and open relationship with my mum. I think it's best to just stay open with it and when you feel ready to just share (if you ever want to) how you feel. You never know how they are going to react and for all you know it could be completely fine with both of them.

Re: Anxiety

Hello @That_Beef96 and @letsheal, the thoughts that have been considered here are really great. It can be really hard to make everyone happy, especially when people have different views. I think that is when it is particularly important to focus on what makes you happy, because our views/needs are important too! It is a shame to hear that you feel as though your mum is an obstacle for you, I hope you are able to receive some support from your other family members Heart
