I don't know what to do

Recommended Posts

I am 14 years old and I feel like I am bisexual but I don't know if I really am. I am anxious about telling my parents because I feel like they would just disown me or shame me. I feel like I may have a crush on my best friend but she's already with another girl. I don't know what she would say and I don't know what to do. Can someone help me?

It takes a lot of courage to explore and understand your own sexuality, and it's understandable that you may feel anxious about discussing it with others, especially your parents. However, it's important to remember that you have the right to be true to yourself and to explore your identity without fear of judgement or discrimination. Thank you for being vulnerable and sharing this with me and other members on this platform. The decision to come out to your parents is yours, and it's important to do so when you feel ready and safe. If you do decide to talk to them, it may be helpful to prepare what you want to say and to have some resources on hand, such as websites or books, that can help them understand bisexuality and support you.  I am happy to share a few resources with you if you'd like? 

Also, if you feel comfortable, you could try talking to your friend about your feelings. It's important to approach this conversation with respect and sensitivity, and to be prepared for any outcome. Your friend may not share your feelings, but it's important to respect her relationship and support her happiness. How does this sound to you?

I do want to remind you that you are not alone, and there are many people who will support and accept you for who you are. It's important to take care of yourself and to surround yourself with people who love and accept you for who you are, which includes this community.

Thank you for this answer. I think I will just take some time in order to organize my feelings. Again, thank you for this support!✨✨
