Question Letter to my mum - November 13th 2013, 09:39 PM

So I haven't been doing very well lately. I've been thinking of telling my mum. But from past experience, I know that I can't get my point across in person, especially about something like this. I don't have the letter written out yet, but I'm not sure how to give it to her.
I don't see her in the morning.
I don't want to be there when she reads it.
I don't even want to be around when she reads it, because tbh, I don't want to discuss it right away. I know it has to happen, but it'd just be really awkward.
So I was wondering if you guys have any advice for when to give her the letter?
Thanks. x

Ellie,

I definitely think telling your mum is a good idea, so well done; it takes an enormous amount of bravery to contemplate doing something like this!

So, I would actually suggest leaving it clearly addressed to her somewhere prominent where she'll find it whilst you're out (Eg. Leave it on the kitchen table at the weekend before going into town).

Best of luck!

Hey there, Ellie!

I'm glad Adam helped you out with this issue! It seems to me that you have given her your letter already (which by the way, I thought was a good idea); so I have decided to close this thread as your question seems to have been answered and your dilemma solved.

If you would like it re-opened, you can feel free to PM me or PSY (Robin).


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
