((OOC:: I’m not even sure how to approach this in character, so as the admin of this blog, let me share my views and wisdom.
No matter how your family reacts to your news, Life is always worth living.
The fact of the matter is parents will overreact to things without even thinking about how it will affect their children.
Let me share a story with you. When I was little, my mother would spend numerous nights a week at the bar. One day when she had actually stayed home, we got into an argument about something stupid like cleaning my room, eventually we were both angry and had been yelling back and forth when she told me that I was the reason she went to the bar every night. Because of me she never wanted to be home. Then she stormed out of the house leaving me a mess. That was years ago and has stuck with me ever since. Needless to say, I have never had that great of a relationship with my mother. I don’t recall if she ever apologized, but with time we both got over it. (hell, I don’t know if she even remembers that)
Your father was probably caught up in the initial shock of the moment and didn’t know how to react so he probably overreacted. Give him some time to relax and get used to the idea of who you really are. In the mean time, surround yourself with friends and loved ones who are supportive of you and your life choices.
You are not horrible or disgusting, you’re just different than what he’s used to, and that’s ok. People love you for who you are. I’m sure he still loves you too and would never want to lose you.
I’m not the greatest with advice or comforting others, I haven’t personally dealt with this issue, but I do know what it’s like to have parent problems and to be severely depressed. If you’d like to talk more, feel free to contact me on my main, and I hope things calm down for you soon.
Life may suck right now, but things do get better with time. Just be patient, hold your head up, and keep positive company. <3 ))
