How To Tell My Parents 1

The idea of outing myself to my parents is fraught with difficulties. I'd like to be in a more financially and emotionally secure position. But should that day ever come, I think I'd start with this.

Dear Mom and Dad, I'd like you to watch this video and hear what your thoughts are.

I love you,


That wouldn't be the end all be all, but rather the beginning. The beginning of letting my parents know the real me.

This video was put together by TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup.

I guess I can't even imagine having to tell my family now. I did it when I was young, stupid and didn't care much. I guess that made it easier.

Good luck with that.

No idea when or if it will happen, just imagine that I'll have to tell them sometime, so am trying to think of a way to break it to them gently.

Maybe you could watch Religulous with them. Then you could be like, "I dunno, that Bill Maher sure does make sense...."
They are your folks Fiery, they will always love you no matter how smart you are!!

I'm on a break but I had to check in with you!!

a poignant video, nice simple way to show that their 'instruction manual' isn't suitable for everyone.

I haven't told my Mum and possibly never will, does that make me weak?

Fiery said...

Tracey- I know they will always love me. The reason for NOT telling them, is that they will then always be worried about my immortal soul. Add that onto all the rest of the worries I've given them and it just doesn't seem fair to burden them with it.

Aw OzA, don't be like that. I don't know if I'll ever tell my folks, just trying to have a contingency plan in order if they really want to confront me on the whole thing.

It's not weakness, it's prudence.

Now get some sleep. :)

Thank you for that video. Loved it.

Fiery said...

Hiya pink! :) Glad you liked the video. And very nice to see you pop up to say hi.

Have a good one! :)

Looks like I'm lucky. My parents have always known I'm out and its not an issue at all. The rest of my mom's family, well, they're all in denial about me. I don't worry about it, its not my problem.
