In my other thread, I said that I planned to tell my mom when I go back home in late March. But she caught me on YIM and began asking me why I was so bothered recently. And then I just said it. I laid it out and told her that I'm into guys, and that the liking girls part is still under careful consideration. And she told me that she and dad had been expecting it, and that dad had told her "He's our son, we have to accept and love him". And that no matter what happens, I should ask God for guidance and that they'll support me if I end up this way or that way. And I feel really good that I finally told her about it. I mean, that's not to say everything went very well. She said that being gay is not a sin, but the 'lifestyle' is, and that I should still try to love girls over guys. I understand that it'll take a while for her to really accept it wholeheartedly, but I'm willing to wait it out and help her in this. Besides, I'm not ready for a romantic relationship yet and I just want to revel in the fact that a big barrier between us has been broken down and that she'll be there for me. It feels good.
