I'm considering coming out to my parents as trans... like, FTM trans. But I'm terrified to do it... I don't want them to freak out or anything... do you have any tips to help me?
1. It’s ok to wait until you’re ready and you feel safe. There is no shame in waiting.
2. It’s good to be honest. If you hide the truth or gloss over it or whatever and you’re parents love it, you’ll never know if they love the real you. It’s best to be totally upfront and honest. That way, however your parents react you at least know you have integrity and they’re reacting to the real you. Knowing that will bring you some peace.
3. Have a party for you after you tell them. See some friends. Plan something in your life for after so that it will feel a lot like your life will go on and on and on (because it will).💛💛
