My Parents

Sign in to follow this  


I had always been glad to have the parents that I do. My mother has some problems with showing that she cares, but I know it could be so much worse then it is.

On the other hand my father is such a great person. He grew up with a stay-at-home mother and a father in the Air Force. Their family is very conservitive and went to church on a weekly basis without fail. We've notice the hypocrisy that's come from our family.

My father has been so supportive of me. I'm very lucky to have someone like him in my life.

I've been pushing my luck though by having fits of dysphoria. Then I regret saying something that would make them feel bad.

But I do love them and I do recognize that I'm lucky to have supportive parents.

It's great that your parents are supportive. Try not to alienate that with those "fits of dysphoria." There are many [trans]people who would willingly give their eye teeth for the support and acceptance of their parent(s).

It's especially cool that your dad is supportive. Being fairly young, a father will come in handy for learning all the things boys need to learn. ;) Or at least help you unlearn all the things the females around you have tried to force-feed ya for the past 18 years.

I agree that I've been blessed with having my parents even if they have a few things they don't understand about it. Yeah, I told my dad about three months ago and he's been helping me look for resources that will help me.

He's been telling me when I do things that aren't "guy-like", but I was never very girly and always have dressed like a guy except for having long hair.
