@Birdie Thank you for sharing your story. I am in a verrry similar place. Married to my husband 12+ years, two kids. I only recently realized that the way I’ve always viewed the world, places me in the LGBTQ+ community (bi, pan). I’ve shared this with a small handful of people. In doing so, I’ve realized that it’s helpful to share my life experience, and during that process ask them about how theirs compares and only assigning labels later in the conversation, rather than up front.
@beka I don’t know if it is true for you but I would get so offended and hurt by the lgbtq+ community not being accepted or for people that I looked up to telling me that it was a sin—and I didn’t realize that it was coming from a place of deep down feeling like they were telling me that a part of my own being was a sin or wasn’t accepted.
@beka thank you for that insight in “how” to share. I never thought about doing it that way.
