A Struggle At Youth

A Struggle At Youth

I was outed by my old boss when I worked at a Taekwondo school when I was 15. He threatened to fire me if I didn’t tell my family. My parents are Christians and they would never accept me. They brushed off the news and we didn’t speak on it for years. I never hid who I was. I dated a girl in high school, and they never mentioned or acknowledged she was my girlfriend. I didn’t hide anything, they just didn’t want to know.

I began to love who I was. Contrary to their beliefs, the Bible is mistranslated for their agenda. God loves, accepts, and cares for us as lgbtq+ people. I am a proud member of the community. However, I still live with my parents. I planned on moving out right after I graduated high school. Then the pandemic hit and I lost my job. I am eager to remove myself from their environment and become who I am on the inside.

I am on a continuous journey to become who I am meant to be, and I have amazing friends and extended family who are supporting me at all times. Do not give up on yourself. You are amazing and loved no matter what people tell you!
