Hi All, I’ve recently been feeling a lot more at ease with the changes I am going through, The EC community is such a great way to feel at accepted for whatever that may be. I am starting to feel that although I don’t yet know where my sexuality is. I do know that I have had a tough year, and none of my family or friends actually know why i’ve needed therapy, It’s been easy to disguise as Covid isolation, loneliness etc. But the truth is I am still and have been heartbroken and experienced a whole shift in my perception of my sexuality, and I can’t share that with them. I can’t tell them because it’s not just me I would out. And it’s a small village where everyone knows everyone. Once a secret gets out it just spreads ! Her violent partner would inevitably put us both in a coffin if he ever knew what happened. So it has to stay a secret, but i’m ready to tell my family and frustrated that I can’t be open and honest with them. I can’t see a way to change this and my therapist who knows all of the story also says she feels there’s a real danger for her and I if this gets out. Struggling today to accept that I have to carry this secret around. I Just wanted to share that with you all as I have no other outlet for the frustration.
