>Did anyone ever tell you that you are the architypal flower child? You show it when you express satisfaction with how much you have achieved in your young life. Most guys your age are insecure and completely unsatisfied with what they’ve accomplished.

I am happy with what I have achieved so far but there is definitely more to do. I have had plenty of failures so far as well. Nobody has ever described me as a flower child until now though.

>I am a gay teenager in rural US. My entire family is devoutly Pentecostal Christian. I’ve heard my mom say that if any of her children come out to her, she’ll put them on the curb. I love my family, but how can I go on knowing they might not love me?

This is a hard question to answer. Everyone fears losing their family when they come out. I have had friends who have been kicked out of home. I have not grown up in your world but I understand your fear.
