Hi! Also in the tampa area. Hit me up if you wanna talk. [EMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/EMAIL]
Don't expect it to get better. Moms always see being gay as a problem, thats how God MADE THEM! Also... you should also see other aspects of your life, believe me, sexuality is not everything in this world, maybe that is what your mother wants you to see. I bet God has given you really amazing gifts and right now all you talk to God about is your mother... Have you told him that you don't care what he asks of you, you will do it because you love him, that a dedicating him your entire life would still be too little to repay his love for you... Pray and be happy, the people that suffer the most are the happiest, for example, Saint Madre Teresa de Calcuta! She suffered a lot, and we (including me) cant even stop eating a chocolate for God... Funny I say it in a good way.
I am Gay too, I am a Catholic and I am extremely happy and since I live in Mexico I get to see poverty each and everyday and I figured out... I rather be gay (Sensitive, emotional, spiritual, happy, and many other things too) than be poor, and I am sure the day I am poor too Ill finally be happier!
I wanted to say it in private but I still cant because of the posts and that sorta crapppppp.... anyway BE HAPPY, when you know you love God, what can go wrong, but can you love him even more... we will always be in debt with his love!
Um... TOLD YOU SO!!!!!!
you are awesome i love queen espically freddie thnks for proving queen is awesoem
I like the way u accepted ur gay its kind of cool for you to be that courageous ^_^
Life is getting a lot easier for me actually. I appreciate all the advice and comforting words you have all given me. I just so happened to find someone who has been in a similiar situation with his parents (also super conservative). I met him last friday for our first date. We have since decided that we are perfect for each other in every way.... In about 12-13 hours I will be meeting TJ again and officially making him my boyfriend. I consider myself very lucky to have met such a wonderful guy.
Sorry about all the cr*p you go through. Kind of ironic when a parent acts less mature, less understanding, and less intelligent than their own kid. Im a christian too, but with a much more inclusive doctrine than your Mom's. (they have gay weddings ). Their whole deal is that your goal should be to act like Jesus as much as you can, and Jesus was about love and understanding, not hate and criticism. Sounds like you Mom has lost the spirit of Christ. Bet she would have a fit if you told her, hey, I changed my mind. Im straight now. I met a wonderful 22 year old black single Mom of 3, and were getting serious.
Hang in there, you sound really grounded. Any person, guy or girl would be lucky to have you as a partner.
great for you dude!
im not gay but...you obviousley havent met me....jk jk haha...congrats man im happy for you
I'm sorry I hope everything goes well for you.
Thanks noah. Perhaps this is all happening to fast for them. It is hard because when I was away at school I was out and open with everyone and nobody had a problem with it. I shouldn't have agreed to come back home and take online classes. Or maybe I shouldn't have come out yet. Idk but ill try to just get them to trust me again but it is their firm belief that being gay is a sin so nothing short of a miracle will change their mind.
i think you need a break from the them(parents) and just relax: hang out and then mabe when the've calmed down, mabe you can help get them more information about being gay, and help them understand you better!!! remind them that (mom is a bible nut) no matter what god loves alll his children!!!!!!!_____good luck______!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Darling, find a job and high tale it out of there. They will come around, but you will feel more comfortable in your own place. Then you can go on all the dates you want to and not feel any pressure. Find a roommate if you have too.
Thats unfortounate. I hope things get better for you!
Have you seen this movie call Prayers for Bobby? It's kind of sad in that the gay son eventually commits suicide (this movie takes place in the the 70s). But it is also about the struggle of a mom who tries to change her son since she is also from a Christian background but she begins to question her faith and her relationship with God when her son commits suicide. The other family members were more acepting of him. She begins to read this diary her son had left behind which tells her that her son isn't on this path to damnation because he was still looking to God to help him and to a church which accepts and helps gays. Of course, I'm emphasizing the religious struggle here, not the suicide. Eventually she learns to accept him even though it was after his death.
It's on youtube: YouTube - ‪Bobby (2009 Gay Film Based On A True Story Starring Sigourney Weaver) Part 1 of 6‬‏
rofl. Well, that's great!
I can't exactly tune her out. She wont be satisfied unless I denounce my homosexuality. Its not gonna happen tho so she can get bent. I will try not to let it get to me anymore tho.
Just let her freak out. It may be a pain in the ass but she'll come around soon enough. The trick is, let her win. Any time that she confronts you, tune it out and just say ok. You can't have a one sided fight, now can you?
The best things to do are just try to ignore it and NEVER let her get to you. You are who you are. It's hard, but always keep your chin up
