And now my mind won’t stop going back to it and thinking over all the things she said. I know she meant well, but a lot of the things she said were… really kind of painful.
And she cried. I’ve never seen my mother cry like that. Ever.
I feel like the worst son.
She doesn’t even want a son.
I shouldn’t have told my parents anything…
Hun, that’s not a good mindset. If you hadn’t admitted to your own mother who you really are, kept it bottled up inside, it’s worse than suppressing it altogether. For years I knew I was bisexual, but I fought it. Embracing it was about the best thing I ever did for myself. People may not understand, but given time they will accept. Be strong, hun, and know that even though she may be very confused right now, she’s still your mother, and she still loves you, because you’re you.
