im 19 and live in a small town in the midwest.
i finally admitted to myself that i was gay a year ago. since then, ive had "the talk" with my parents, but they still think they can cure me because homosexuality is a "sin" and a "deathstyle." because of my faith, im not allowed to be me, they say. ive told my best friends, and they support me fully. but they p*** me off sometimes because they've told a lot of people they shouldn't have. i am happy with myself, i just couldn't stand up to my church or other friends who are less supportive. but my best friends have kept me through it.
they've kept me from doing things.
i wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them.
i'd be dead.
sometime i wish i was, just to make it easier.

  • It has been done before.. you can leave and go be happy without feeling restricted. California, here you come!

  • Hmm...

    You know what would ease your soul?

    Posting lesbian pictures.

  • We only have one life to live. Be true to yourself and love who you are.

  • I agree get some distance from your parents. Be you

  • Please move away from your parents, get yourself ecucated, and focus on your true self. In time I hope they can accept all of you.
    Good Luck

  • It sucks that so many people in the world are still so close minded when it comes to homosexuality. I've never understood why people would choose a religion that wouldn't let them be themselves or be in fear of a spiteful god.
    I'm not gay myself. But I have close friends that are and I've always been supportive. Those are the friends that you have to cling to. There will always be someone who thinks that your lifestyle is wrong, and all you can do is just brush it off and make yourself stronger. I hope for the best for you. I hope your parents come around and your best friends stick by your side. Don't be afraid of who you are.
