Things to remember:
- When no one is validating you, you can validate yourself
- When no one is comforting you, you can comfort yourself
- When no one is kind to you, you can be kind to yourself
- When no one believes you, you can believe yourself
You can give yourself the things that you are looking for externally. You are allowed to be good to yourself.
people are following me probably thinking im cool
you are completely right
You can be proud of your sexuality and still in the closet for your own safety. Not everyone you know has to know that you’re not straight for you to be a ‘good’ queer/gay. Protecting yourself from homophobes is not ‘contributing to the issue’. Do not come out into a dangerous situation with no support network or without any financial independence. If you think someone might out you, don’t tell them shit.
I feel you with the parents! I really do. I know mine (especially my dad), can be like that sometimes, and I want to tell him to shut the heck up. Just try to avoid discussing UNI with them any more than necessary, then you don't have to listen to them!
I know I know it’s just exciting to talk about and we have some great conversations about uni but then someone just brings something like that up and everything falls flat :/
