Coming out to parents aghhh


Recommended Posts

Hiiiiii. Im 22 years old and a gay man :). I’ve been struggling for awhile to come out to my parents. Im not exactly sure why because they’re accepting, liberal, and have said I can love whoever I want. I’ve been out to all my friends for years and I came out to my sister two years ago and planned to tell my parents but I just sorta stalled on that. I want to tell them asap but every time I open my mouth to tell them it’s like nothing comes out. Maybe because I’m making a big deal out of it but if anyone has advice on how I could casually bring it up that would be soooo helpful. I try to remind myself that the sooner I do it the sooner it’ll be over and the sooner we’ll live more normal lives but I just can’t get myself to say the words. Please lmk if anyone had any advice!! Thanks :)
