[Editor's Note: Hey Readers! Welcome to the seventh installation of "Throwback Thursdays." Every first Thursday of the month we'll feature a post from the BDU Blog, Version 1.0. This post is about a person struggling with coming out to their parents in a different sense than we normally might think of coming out trouble.It's a short one, but it's a good one. Enjoy.]

One of my biggest fears in coming out to my family members is that by telling them, I'm acknowledging myself as a sexual being. I'm not okay with that yet and I know that it's something that I need to work on within myself. This is who I am and I can't change what some people will think. How beautiful a life will be in which I am accepting and loving of every part of my identity. And that it is a joy, a good thing that I am sharing when I come out to my family.
