Question: I’d love to know how to say I love you

Kei asks…

My Mom and Dad tell me it’s just a phase, but it’s not. My best friends tolerate it, but they don’t understand.

How do you explain to the people you love the most in life that you’re not what they think you are?

    I am puzzling over the same question. If you figure out an answer, let me know. :-(

    Everything is a phase, life is a phase. What is their point?

    I am who I am today. Tomorrow, I will be someone else. People will label me the same, but it’s not the labels that are true… I am true… the labels are never true, except like a watch that doesn’t run shows the right time twice a day.

    It sounds like you have explained it to them, and they refuse to listen. Maybe they never will. I know it hurts.

    I feel u. Am going thru the very same thing.
    Unfortunately they cant get in our minds and bodies to experience it for themselves, however, they also must b open to try to understand….sometimes that just takes time. Surround yourself w a support system and work on yourself. You can’t control if or when others will come around…so u must do what is right for u.
