how did it go? could you share your experience maybe? if you wanna…

Hey look you know you are torturing your own self I know it is kinda difficult let’s see it easy way if you are financial independence then it is quite easy but if you are dependent on someone then it is quite hard so in first situation you can stay away to your family and live your life as you wanted on second please stable your condition and stay financial independent then do as I say and I think that is best thing you can do

Coming out is a very brave thing to do, and it’s extremely personal and different for everyone. There’s no single, correct way to come out to your family and friends. You’re the expert in what feels right to you, and who it feels safest to tell.

Here are some suggestions that might make the conversation easier:

When you decide that you’re ready to come out, give yourself some time to practice how you’ll do it and what you’ll say.

Identify the people or person in your life that you think will be the most okay with the news, and come out to them first. You can often get a sense of how friendly someone is to LGBTQ people by how they react when the topic comes up in conversation.

Do some research so that you have information about being LGBTQ in case your loved one has questions or doesn’t have the facts.

You may be more comfortable coming out by writing a letter or e-mail rather than telling someone in person. That’s totally fine.

After you decide who you’ll come out to, what you’ll say to them, and how you’ll say it, be prepared to wait as they digest and accept the new information. Give them the time they need.

Don’t assume that everyone will react with prejudice — go in with an open mind. Some people may surprise you with their openness and acceptance, and many folks already know other LGBTQ people in their lives.

We’re here for you.
