Hi! I came out to my mom the other day and it was so awkward. There was a lot of miscommunication and discomfort at first and in the end she seemed fine with it but I still can't drop this feeling that she judges me or is disgusted by me for liking girls. I'm really proud of who I am and its taken me years to get to this place, but I still have this fear of being judged or shunned. It may just be all in my head... I have no idea but I really needed to vent. Thank you for being so kind and open!
well as long as she isn’t showing any concrete signs of negativity towards your sexuality then it’s probably in your head.
for me, coming out was sort of forced but i went with it. coming out on my own feels…wrong somehow even though i claim to be “proud” of who i am. but part of me wonders if the other person will treat me differently forever knowing my sexuality.
tl;dr: it is possible it’s all in your head because of ingrained prejudices against anything gay in our culture and coming out makes you feel other in comparison to your mother or she could really feel that way but it’s probably the first one
