Okay, deep breath!
I want to come out to my mother. My father passed away when I was six years old. I am an only child, and my mother is currently my only family.
Many times during our deep conversations I want to bring up the fact that I am gay to her. I just don't know where to start, is it the right step to take?
I want my relationship to her to be based on nothing more than facts. I want to be able to talk to her about these things. She is the only person in my life that I would trust to be there for me.
I understand that this will either make or break our relationship.
Is it worth it to come out?
I need her to love me for who I am. It's too much of a burden to keep this from her. It feels like our whole history was based on a lie. .
