Coming out
Guys hold thumbs for me I'm coming out to my ma this weekend. I decided the time is right to do this and she's not working this weekend so if she needs time to deal with it she can, she is fantastic she's done everything for me (my so-called dad left when I was 3 and she raised us on her own) and I love her and admire her but really I have no idea how she'll react, I've never heard her comment on anything about gay people so I want so badly to respect her but I also want to be honest with her. So I don't really have a question
but anyway this is going to happen so just hold thumbs.
