So I told my dad I was bi yesterday. Today he said an I quote "Let's not put a label because you are only 11 and you don't know". I know that there is not an age limit on knowing what you feel. He made me feel like he just thinks this is a phase or something. This is what I was worried about. I know people have it worse than me but I'm always like FML. I feel like I'm a selfish brat.

Thanks for telling me how your dad reacted. This does happen to a lot of people who come out around your age, and it can be a really tough feeling to face. However, it does usually get better over time. Although he doesn't see it now, you can show him how sure you are by sticking to your word, and he will see how happy it makes you being out and then hopefully realise that this is not just a phase. However, you will have to be patient with it as it can take a while for people to come round. What do you think? 

Also, can I ask, why do you feel like a selfish brat?

Hey @Crazygirl

I get what you're saying about others having less than you, but your experiences are still valid regardless, and it's okay to open up about them. How are you feeling?

Hi, i'm sorry your Dad acted like that. That's one of the reasons i'm scared to tell my family. I hope he learns to understand.
