Hey there,

Sorry I've only just seen this now. Did you come out to them? If so, how did it go?

I go along with this message. Were you and are you comfortable telling them? 

also, did you think it was time? how do you think your parents think or how do you think they will react?

Thats okay and whenever you choose to tell them just try to think of you being proud of who you are! :)

Hey @Keira

Yeah, that's fair enough. It has to be the right time for you, and it's good to remember that there's no rush; if you're not ready, then it's more than okay to wait :)

How are you feeling about your decision?

I feel kinda bad I didn't tell them because I feel like I'm obligated to, but at the same time I feel kinda relieved that I didn't tell them and my anxiety level has gone down a little bit

Hey there,

Yeah, I think it's pretty normal to feel bad for not telling them, but you have to do what's right for you at the time, and if you don't feel ready, then that's more than okay :)

Do you have an idea of when you might tell them, or are you not thinking about it for now?

So i'm thinking of getting blue, pink, and white sticky notes and writing something on it, and the last one will be on my door and it'll say something like "Now get ready because..." and I'll be holding a sign that says "I'm trans!" so yeah

Hey there,

That's a very creative and original idea! Where did you come up with it? How do you think it will go?

Sorry for not responding I've been in a kind of bad metal state but I'm back yay. Anyways it ended with them screaming at me telling me that I wasn't trans so yeah. Life sucks though

Hey there,

That's okay, you don't need to apologise. Would you like to tell me more about what's been going on with your wellbeing?

Sorry if I am butting in but are you alright? And I am sorry that your parents didn't accept and yelled at ya.

my grandparents are the ones who i came out to because i thought it would be easier to tell them first. i was clearly wrong about that. honestly since then i haven't really enjoyed doing the things i used to and i feel kinda empty.

Oooooooh, also what things did u like doing before that you don't enjoy now? If you don't mind me asking.

I liked drawing, painting, cooking, and stuff like that more but now even tho I still like doing them I can't find it in me to actually do them
