I Hide Part Of Who I Am From My Family

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 912 People

    I am bisexual. My family isn't fond of gays

    and lesbians. I'm a disappointment to them. They have told me if I was gone no one would notice. I tested that. I disappeared for 3 days. They were right, no one noticed. I'm not the innocent country girl they wanted. I'm just a waste of space to them. My cousin who I was...

    I Don't Want Them To Know

    how much they can hurt me by fighting with each other. If I let them know, they will think that I am trying to control them; so I hide it.

    I still don't think they realize I'm psychotic.

    .. But to be fair, I try not to bring it up

    They Wouldnt Understand

    They just wouldn't understand, they judge. I don't, I even have to hide it from my wife. The one person who I should be able to tell everything to. My perverted desires, if she knew them she would never trust me out of her sight. Not that she does now. I feel like I'm in a...

    Mostly From My Mom.

    My mom thinks I am all happily married and stuff. Well, I'm not. She couldn't have kids so they adopted and it was just me. My dad died a few years back and it is tough on my mom. I barely make enough money to get by, can't help her out with that. I think the only thing she...

    So far I've only shown him,

    the one I love that side of me. And he's not disgusted by it at all. But deep down inside my mind I'm still insecure about it somehow. The words he said and I don't know why it's stuck in my head. And I feel so conflicted I haven't told anyone else but him. I've written about...

    I wanted love and something else only the one I

    love could give me. I know it's not something most people talked about my friend even said "Why don't you take care of it yourself? You seem to need it." It's not like that I think, don't know how it can have such impact on me. Is this some form of illness? Damn this is...

    About a decade ago, I divided myself.

    One part of me retreated into my mind and became my inner voice that I frequently speak to. She doesn't tell me to do insane or violent things, she doesn't bad mouth me (most of the time) and she's generally good at keeping me company since I'm a very lonely spirit. I've been...

    Yeah, Hiding It All Is Just A Part Of Life...

    I Hide My Tranny Side From Some

    I've always been transgendered and for many years I hid that from everyone, and no one knew. But eventually my wife found out, and told many of our female friends trying for sympathy (but it always turned out that I'd end up with another girlfriend to go out with). But to this...
