How can I get my mom to accept that I'm gay? (I would love to hear personal stories)?

How can I get my mom to accept that I'm gay? (I would love to hear personal stories)? Topic: Shadow writing paper
July 23, 2019 / By Lexie
Question: I'm gay. I know I'm gay. Without a shadow of a doubt. I've accepted it fully. And I'm happy the way that I am, but my mom isn't happy with it. So, my mom went through my English binder that I left laying somewhere. I wrote a paper about my sexuality and she read it. So when I got home, she had a talk with me. She was fine with it at first, and then the next day she flipped. She had another talk. She even called a Christian minister, she's a huge Christian btw. So he suggested that I'm going through an identity crisis. She believed it. She thinks that I'm pulling this stunt because my father committed suicide a few years back and I can't cope. I've tried explaining it to her that I've always known I'm gay. She also believes that I'm not gay because I'm not a typical gay person. She thinks that I'm confused and that I'm not actually sexuality attracted to guys. She also thinks that it's a phase and I'm going to change. She just can't accept it. It kills me. Help?

There is nothing you can do to change how she feels. Just accept yourself, live a good life and maybe she will come around.

Not sure what you mean about this "stirring up a hornets nest" stuff....just how many debts are you trying to fix? 1) DO NOT send them a dime without a written letter outlining exactly the terms you negotiated. That includes payment plan, pay/delete agreement, statement that the debt is "paid in full", and not settled. There are many cases where you think you settled the whole debt, just to find the balance was sold to another collection agency. Send them a letter outlining your proposal....DO NOT call them or Email your negotiations. GET IT IN WRITING. And give them a deadline to respond. You should also be requesting that they validate the debt.

Don't pay until you have an agreement in writing! then you keep your receipt [canceled check, money order, whatever] and the agreement FOREVER because over 25% of these come back after a payoff. I'd reccomend checking out Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover" from your local library, and/or checking out his website for good info on keeping collectors in line.

i'm no longer stunned with this now. I certainly have already stunned 2 years in the past while my pal too confirmed me his pretend identity as a woman and the affection mails he won. i think of this has become ordinary on an identical time as chatting. Its rather hilarious if those undesirable adult adult males think of that your colleague is rather a female and start to love him deep. yet while your pal could be caught what may be the reaction of those adult adult males....?

Wish I could help, however, I never told my mother that I was gay. I just didn't want to deal with it. In your mother's case, if you never bring it up again and she assumes "it was a phase", she'll never actually know you- and that will have been her choice. Ultimately, I don't think it matters. But if you're a person who can deal with a lot of turmoil, then bring it up to her again eventually. Alternatively, you could just go on living your life and let her think whatever she wants; in all probability, she'll die before you do and a goodly part of your life will be lived without her around.

I think like others have said..There are good and not so good in any profession. Though I can't practise as a midwife yet due to my own family commitments (currently expecting Baby No.5!),I recently qualified a-Level Entry Midwifery (uk) and as part of my course had to assist over 50 births and work with numerous expectant mothers so have therefore worked alongside many 'established' midwives..Most of whom were fantastic at what they do.However..There are a minority who are very 'clinical' about what they do.They are far too 'text-book' where as I am much more informal with mum's-to-be and appreciate that every mum is different,has different wishes and expectations that may not 'fit-in' with current guidelines but that's their right..and no matter what work I have put in to qualifying as a midwife..I am also an experienced mum (4 Children/No.5 on way),,and I think midwives should give Mum's far more credit for their REAL LIFE Experience because I have learned far more from carrying,giving birth,and rearing 4-5 children than I ever could studying!. I have also seen Midwives give misleading advice,,or at least advice that is really of not much use to the mother...They forget that sometimes things can be 'normal and nothing to worry about' to them seeing it everyday..but to new Mum's,(and we've all been there),even the smallest of problems,when we are not sure about things,can seem very worrying and I feel midwives should perhaps listen more and patronise a little less..we all started somewhere,and there is NO book or magazine that can Ever prepare us for parenthood lol!! Hope this helps a little,Best of luck! xx

Well, there are incompetent people in every profession. That said, I'd have to go on the experience of friends who used midwives and the midwives I know. The overall impression is that midwives tend to not acknowledge their limited training. They are not physicians, and are not qualified to make many of the calls they make, such as letting a woman languish for a day and a half before rushing her to a doctor for an emergency C-section. The one's I have met tend to be arrogant. All the best.
