Sindy's Blog - January 12, 2006

January 12, 2006

Ugh! Back to school and back to homework. Even with two weeks off I still don't feel like I've had long enough of a break. Simon says I should stop complaining so much because at least it's not as cold in California as it is in Detroit. I guess he kind of has a point.

I gave Simon a call on New Year's Day because one of my New Year's resolutions is to keep in better contact with my friends. I know we live kind of far apart but it's not like we can't pick up a phone once and a while. He agreed that we should start paying more attention to what's going on in each other's lives. Like, I totally forgot that it was just his mom's birthday a few weeks ago and I usually get her a card and stuff. I felt so dumb. We're going to start planning a visit soon. Maybe we can do it on Spring Break. We have no idea what we're going to do yet but at least we're thinking about it.

I'm usually not that big on making resolutions but this year just seemed like the one to make some real goals. I'm going to try and stop picking on Amy so much (this one is going to be the hardest!), make a little more effort in gym class and take up a new hobby. I still haven't decided what my hobby is going to be but I figured that I would try out a bunch in January before I commit myself to one thing. I'm thinking something artsy like a pottery class or maybe work on meditating. We'll see.

Did any of you make a New Year's resolution? Are you going to work harder in school this semester? Stop arguing with your parents? about what your goals are for the year!

Peace Out,

Sindy

    You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

    I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!

    If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.  Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.

    Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway... I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...  It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development. I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.  So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?  Please help!
