My parents found out I was Bi (my mom went through my phone) and they condemned me a lot. And I've done something where they think I'm straight again but I have a girlfriend now and I don't know what to do. I'm just really lost. I struggle with depression and anxiety and I feel really closed in because I'm a failier to my parents in their eyes and they think I'm a failier to god. And I can't help but believe them. 😧😧
Hello! First of all I’m sorry you have to deal with homophobia in your family. You’ll get away from it one day. I pray that you find the answer and comfort you need. You aren’t a failure to god. God loves you so much.
1 John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Don’t let your homophobic mom get under your skin. I’d say the best way to deal with that is to pray for help with your problem and maybe ask queer Christian friends how they’ve dealt with it. Remaining strong is very important as well as remembering God’s love for you. Feel free to hit up our inbox if you need any more help. I hope you continue to grow in faith even with your mom being homophobic. Also remember there’s no requirement saying you have to be straight to be Christian. You were made in god’s image and you don’t have to compromise your faith for your homophobic mom. I also deal with depression and anxiety and hope that it gets better for you. Even though it’s hard it all gets better one day. Once again, you aren’t a failure in God’s eyes, he loves you. Have a good day :)
