Anonymous asked: “I think I'm bi, or pan... Or something! And I'm really terrified, my family believes that homosexuality is wrong and it scares me to no end. All I want to do is talk to my friend about it to see if she would still love me anyway but I don't want it getting out, I don't know if I'm ready to accept myself. I don't want my parents to think I'm a failure”

Hello anon,

I know that feeling, I can see why you are scared but please just for a moment and look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself: why would you not accept yourself? It is you, the one and only you, and regardless how scary it may seem to embrace your sexuality, it is one of many things about you that you happen to be born with, like your eye color, height, etc. I know it is all due to uncertainty about how people around you might react but you should remember that you just need to be you regardless.

Firstly, please do embrace yourself. It is just amazing to be you, remember that. Secondly, realize there is nothing wrong with you, and the problem here is not anything about you but rather the society. Then, when you feel ready to come out, pick the ones you trust most, and test out the water to get an idea about their view before coming out. It will seem difficult to begin but once you start doing, it will get better, you’ll see. Do not ever rush coming out to anyone, you are the one who decides to do so and make sure you give yourself enough time to explore and embrace yourself. If your parents do think that way, you can consult organizations like PFLAG as many change their ideas after getting in contact with a parent like themselves, and make sure your situation will not be jeopardized if you come out, and if so, postponing might be a better idea, and always have a backup plan.

I hope this helps and feel free to ask whenever you need to.
