This was done through a technique...
I’m sorry that it’s taken me thing long to reply.
My advice to you: I don’t know your parents, I’m not sure how they’d take this information about you. If you think they’ll be open, I say tell them. If you feel like your life would be in danger if you told them, don’t.
This will be one of the most difficult choices in your life. I wasn’t strong enough to do it until I was able to move out, I’m glad I waited.
My brother Mark didn’t have the choice to come out, he was outed and he now lives with me because of my parents rejection.
I know it’s hard, so please, talk with any ADULT who you feel safe with. Knowing your friends are on your side is great, but they’re around your age, which means they probably don’t have the knowledge or life experience to truly help you.
In relation to your boyfriend: I feel it’s dishonest to keep dating him if you don’t tell him. With that said, if you tell him and he tells others you’ll have to deal with that. Honestly, if I was you, I’d use this time to have “ME TIME.” Allow yourself time to change and grow into the person you want to be. Be a proud single teenager.
I’ve never been a fan of people under 18 dating. I don’t think it’s wrong, I just feel it’s illogical. I feel like that’s the time you should be enjoying building yourself, becoming the adult you want to be.
You don’t have to take my advice, but that’s what I have to say.
I wish you luck on your journey and please, feel free to message me anytime.
And PS: If you can get your hands on it: Read Janet Mock’s book “Redefining Realness.” It’s about her journey as a transwoman and it’s amazing!
My thoughts are with you,
He still killed someone. Doesn’t that matter? Doesn’t it matter that he BROKE THE LAW by killing someone!?
Thank you! That’s what I thought, at least I was hoping. I still need to see it.
