FamilyI have been "in the closet" for many years and through EP and therapists, I have finally gathered the courage and knowledge to face what I am. This has given me the courage to tell my family, children and siblings.
While I sometimes feel that my life has been a lie, also I think we have to consider outside influences. I was brought up in era when people were ignorant or feared those of us who were different. People that were, became social outcasts and their families ostracized.. (Oh there's the mother/father/brother/sister of that queer).
The unconditional acceptance by my family, especially my children, has helped me a lot. I move forward now, in the knowledge that those who really matter, support me. So many of us have lost much seeking happiness and fulfillment and to be our true selves,
Now is the time to start telling friends.
