Considering the comments on my letter to my family, I'm wondering if I should hold off sending anything until I have a boyfriend.
On one hand, it gives me more of a reason to send something. It makes it more real, taking it out of realm of theory and what-ifs and putting it into the "I have a boyfriend, how are you going to treat and see him?"
On the other hand, who knows when I'll get a boyfriend.
On the foot, what's the rush?
Sure, I want my family to know that I'm not struggling with being gay. There's no conflict left in me. Although, the more I think about it, the more I feel that I should wait until I have something more concrete for them to consider.
I'm becoming a rather patient person. While I still have pings of wanting to push and prod things along with my family, I think I can handle just going with the flow as I do with most things in life.
... of course, my laissez-faire attitude has backfired a few times before...
