i know i am just a stranger to you, but i care for you. you are not alone. i am also confused about my sexuality. i cannot tell if i am heterosexual or asexual. all of the guys i have come across have always sexually harassed me and attempted to manipulate me into going out with them. like you, i also do not think i am enough for my parents. we crave validation, but aren’t met with it even when we try to excel in school. allow me to say this, even though your parents may not appear to be proud, i am extremely proud of you. you have come so far. you are so strong. i also have the whole political situation in my house. it hurts to hear a family member agree with such horrid ideas. my mother and father are trump supporters, whereas my sister and i are not. my parents are always constantly yelling at the tv. it gets so loud. whenever my sister and i express our side, we get shot down immediately and tension grows. we can all get through this together.
@martybadger For the fact i gave one example, not to point fingers but to use as an example. The point of the question was to see what people thought, and sir I take your comments on board.
You are right that every situation is different, but since you missed the point of the thread, I am interested to know what your thoughts are on a generalised basis of the topic. I don't know where you live or come from but this is something that in the UK is very apparent that many people do. And yes it is down to them as to how they bring up their children. Of course it is.
So, do you have a general idea concerning this topic?
In regards of minding my own, I'm a thinker and if I see something that promotes a chain of thought, I tend to go with it.... That's how I was brought up, and thanks to places like this I can pose questions to other's based on observation in order to gain opinion.
Hope to hear back from you cause I am genuinely interested. ;)
