Carly

so i’m bisexual and i’ve known it for sure since like 7th grade. i’m 17 now and it’s gotten really difficult for me because i know i am going to have to tell my parents some day, but i’m too afraid to do it. all my friends know about it and even my sister knows and she’s ok with it, but my parents don’t know. i’ve only really ever had one girlfriend and it was in 9th grade and when my mom found out about it she just cried and now i think she’s sort of tried to forget about it and wants to pretend like it never happened. since then i haven’t dated another girl but i feel like i need to tell them sooner or later before i do end up dating another girl so that they’re not in complete and total shock. the only problem is that my parents are super religious and if they found out i was bi i’m just afraid they may never want to talk to me again... especially my dad... it’s really been weighing on me and i feel like i’m more alone each passing day...
