Parents Taking Me To Talk To Church :/so, i've been dating my gf for 11 months tomorrow, and just told my parents over this christmas break. I grew up in a very christian family, even going to school at a christian school. And i still feel very strongly about my faith, even though I know a lot of ppl in the church don't agree with me. Including my parents.
But now, they're setting up a meeting for me to talk to an elder at the church. :/ I know its not going to change my mind about dating my gf or change who I am. But I know its going to be hell. Nothing I say will change their minds and nothing they say will change mine. It's just going to frustrating and pointless.
But I have to go because I really don't want to ruin my relationship with my parents. I want them to see that this is who I am, that I'm still there baby girl and I still love God but that I like girls too. I know it's hard for them (when I told my 15 year old brother he told me I need to keep that to myself :/ ), but it's hard for me too.
My gf thinks i should really just keep it to myself to sort of, she doesn't like advertising it. Because we know that a lot of ppl are very judgemental. But I just want ppl to accept who I am. I wish I didn't have to hide it. But I know that this meeting's just going to be very hard and probably emotional and frustrating. Idk what to do, I guess I just need some support or something. :/
