I still have problems with family and the LGBT issues. They dont accept it and Mum and I just cant talk about it. There is a major like dark space which is heavy over the whole thing. I know thats a weird way to explain it but its basically whats its like.
Years ago I got involved in a big/massive fight in the community and it totally ruined my life. She knows about it and dosnt seem to like the gays over it. Some of that fight now after 11 years is resolved its just been really hard on everyone in the family. So I get ya - even after coming out there is still a lot of things which dont really get said.
If I was happier - maybe in a relationship im sure things would be different but its hard the way things are at the moment.
@ Dark Prince...a fight in the community...what that a fight within the LGBT community or your local community? You don’t make this clear. Also, you use the term “the gays”...personally I dislike this term as it projects an image of the LGBT community as “the other”, something to be avoided and even feared.
Personally, I think that life is short, we only get the one and if family are not accepting or even tolerant of your sexuality, if all avenues to bring them on board have been exhausted, it’s best to move on with your life and if needs be, to cut then out, painful as that may be.
