    I came out to my parents and I got the expected news. I was forbidden to be a lesbian and live under their roof. I found someone I thought I would like forever, but when it came to my parents he left me. He had enough trouble being a transgender he didn’t need me dragging his life down with my homophobic family.. But life happens and I’m happy being single. My parents know now. No they don’t like it, but the decision of who I date is completely up to me. I choose my fate.

    Mood : Brave
    • I’m glad you see the bright side.
      And that’s right, your fate and your happiness depends on yourself. Other people are just complementary.
      I hope you keep taking the right choices!

    • @meganolivia21

      You did the right thing by coming out and asserting your identity. You have every right to live your life confident and comfortable in your own skin, and nobody, not even family, has the right to make you feel like less of a person because your sexuality is contradictory to their bigoted expectations.

      If your parents do end up trying to kick you out, Drop me an inbox and I”ll point you at some support resources.

      That must’ve taken a lot of courage, and I’m proud of you. :) I’m sorry things didn’t work out that greatly, though. At least everything is out in the open now.
      I hope you’re okay, and you know where to find me if you ever want or need to talk about it. ^-^
