    Hello people,

    I had a day today.
    I started out by going to the hairdresser.
    They put a hidden rainbow in my hair and a blue streak in the front of my hair.
    It was great and it makes me feel good. More myself.

    I decided yesterday that I was going to come out to my parents today.
    After I was at the hairdresser's.
    I tried not to think too much about it beforehand, as I got nauseous everytime I did.
    I was so worried.

    After I got home I waited until they were both with me. THen I just blurted it out.

    AND THEY ACCEPTED IT! I mean, they need time to process it, but they accept me !
    Now I know that I am extremely lucky with my parents. VERY lucky. And I am not going to dismiss that.

    I think my other family won't be so understanding. Except my cousin. But the others, I have my doubts. Anyway, that is a concern for another day.

    My parents accepted it! I am over the moon I don't have to hide it anymore.

    So glad for you! That's great!

    And they don't matter as much. (probably?)

    Exactly. It can wait and even if they don't accept me, I'll live.

    Awesome, I'm so happy for you! I hope your other family will be okay with it. I didn't expect my mom to be okay with it but she was. Maybe your other family members will surprise you as well.

    Hi,
    Really happy for you ! Congrats !
    But I think they have not to " accept " anything, you have to be your true self. You did not do anything wrong, you are bisexual, you are who you are and nobody have to criticize who you are.


    Peace

    Congrats! I’m so happy for you.

    Tbh, unless you want to, I wouldn’t worry about coming out to your other family members. I only came out to my parents, brother, and his wife. The main thing is that I refuse to hide it now. If LGBT-stuff or dating comes up I’ll mention it but I don’t plan on doing anymore “coming out” - people can find out in their own time.

    Congrats, when I came out to my mom she kind of exploded into an very angry rage lasting the whole afternoon. My dad and his wife on the other hand did accept it.

    This is very belated, I was gone for most of the time during and after your announcement, but big congrats! I'm glad your parents accepted it. I wish all parents were as open and accepting as yours. :)
