Firstly I wish to acknowledge your courage in making this important step.
We rely on our parents rubber stamp in life and we are devastated if it doesn’t come along. For you in this scenario it better to be prepared for doubt and even rejection than your head in turmoil and great sadness.- please remember this:
- if they show any rejection or more likely disappointment it could be temporary as an adjustment process like shock
- Once you tell them, silence is golden in that too much explaination will only make you feel guilty and you’ll get “but....” You don’t need to justify yourself
- Remain proud you found Jasmine. It is a major achievement
On a different topic when a young man I began living with a woman. Them days society was just getting accustomed to this. When I told my parents they were shocked and kept asking when I was going to marry her! Finally I asked -“if you was a judge what sentence would you hand down”? Short witty answers make impact.
beyondblue topic you are still a jigsaw piece.
beyondblue topic wit, the only answer to torment
