gay suicide. - June 2nd 2009, 04:21 AM

I don't know where I should post this. but I want to die, because I simply can't handle being gay.

I feel wrong. I feel nasty.

and my aunt and family hates me for it. I just don't want to be a problem any longer.

Hey hun,

being gay is not wrong. Not at all. You're not a problem at all, either.

I'm sorry if your family isn't being more accepting - they should love you for all of you. Please know that what they think is not a reflection of your actual worth, though. You matter a freaking lot exactly as you are no matter what anyone else thinks.

Could you try talking to a youth pastor or counselor or something about how you're feeling? They might be able to help you feel like you can handle things more.

There is nothing wrong with being gay!! You are definately not nasty or wrong for wanting to be gay. Family is supposed to love you for who you are and if they don't you don't need them. You need a good support system from your friends or significant other or even people on TH. Like me. =]

I support you! If you need anything or need to talk please feel free to message me!
Always here,
Barb

It's not wrong and it's definately not nasty. It's who you are. Just because your family can't accept you doesn't mean you shouldn't accept yourself!
You should try and meet other gay people, because you'll see they're just like everyone else. Just because you're gay, doesn't mean you're a different person than who you've always been, it just means you like the same gender.

It's surprisingly more normal than you think. And there's nothing inherently wrong with being gay. Not at all. That doesn't determine anything in terms of morality. And you can find ways to be who you are and be comfortable with that in the context of your religious views, too.

Hey Brittany.

There is no need for you to feel 'wrong' or 'nasty' for your sexuality. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being gay and it's your choice.

I'm sorry that you say that your aunt and family hate you for being gay - this is not your fault at all and it seems very unfair of your family to judge you because of your sexuality - you are you and your sexuality shouldn't affect anyone's opinion upon yourself. Why do you personally feel that it's not normal? Or, do you feel that way because of your family's beliefs? I think that if you try and work out how you truly feel about this, it could help you to understand your thoughts and feelings better.

Do you have anyone that you can talk to about this, such as a youth pastor, counsellor, doctor or friend?
