I know that you’re angry about what she did, but attacking me for her decisions will only drive me away.
I know you don’t understand how someone could hide behind a false family, but we weren’t false. We were just safe.
She decided to take a risk for love, and now she’s happy, and I am proud.
My mom met a woman and came out as a lesbian, resulting in a divorce and an angry grandmother. I’m proud of my mom, but my dad’s mom is furious about it even three years later and keeps lecturing me that if I’m going to come out as gay I better not do it after I already marry a man. I don’t think she understands that my mom really did love my dad, it just wasn’t the same as she could have felt for a woman.
