View Full Version : My story about coming out to my mother....

Sep 19th, 2003, 04:50 PM
Today was weird, i feel moody and upset for no reason. After school, i went to KFC with my friends, Alice and Nicola, they are my best of best friends, i would love to share anything to them. They could figure out that i was unhappy, i had promised them i would tell them the big secret.
I was scared and unwilling to tell them i am gay, but i had a feeling that it was the time to tell them, unfortunately, i was not brave enough to tell them the whole story, i fear that they would ignore me after knowing the truth, i don't want to lose friends like them. Finally I didn't tell them face to face, but wrote it in a letter and let them to read it after i left.
After went back home, i still felt uncomfortable and sick. I told my mother that i was upset, she asked my why....God, couldn't she stop asking me why? I was at the margin to tell her, but my sister was there and i truly don't want her to know, so i ask my mother to go out with me. She asked me what's bothering me non-stoppingly, i kept my mouth shut. Suddenly she said "My son, are you gay?" . My Gesus, this is the most embarasing question on earth, i admitted it. Surprisingly, she didn't hit me and blame me, that's what out of my expectation, I told what I had thinking and my feeling to her, she truly understands and accepts me, she said that afterall i am her son, she loves me, i was touched.. :sad: I cried...She told to be brave and it's nothing wrong to be gay, you are supposed to concentrate on your study and do your best, she will always behind me and does everything for my own good, thanks god for giving me such a great mother, here's my story, thanks for reading it.

Vincent, that's great! You're so brave:kiss: And it's cool of your mum to be so cool about it:kiss:

Wow Vincent! :kiss: Your story brought me to tears. I was so happy to hear about your experience and the love and acceptance you received. It reminded me of my story and many of my friends. And I also cried for my friends who feel that they cannot tell their closest loved ones, because of fear or insecurity.

I think that life is extra tough for gay people. Not only do we have to deal with all of the regular shit that's out there, but we also have to deal with being outcasts...but in return, we become stronger and more sure of ourselves. We become more fair because we understand how life can be so unfair. In the end, I don't think I would trade my queerness for the neatess of an ordinary straight life.

Congratulations on so many things...your bravery, your mother's love, your new life. Life will never be simple and easy...but yours is definitely going to be much more satisfying and loving. :D :angel:
