how come it’s cool for snakes to spit venom and unhinge their jaw to swallow people whole, but when i do it, i’m the “antichrist” and i need an “exorcism”?
"can you tell everyone that dinner is ready?"
I’m considering dropping choir in favor of continuing art next year. Choir’s really been putting a strain on my voice - to the point of constantly losing it which terrifies me - and art…well, I discovered oil paints today. So that was a good thing.
I just…I dunno. I’m rather nervous about it, really. Ha.
Oh my gosh, we literally had this sermon on Sunday. It wasn’t awful,per se, but it was rather stifling and more along the lines of how to respond to said person and their trust in telling you about their sexuality. Now that I think back on it, it was…rather odd. The preacher constantly talked about how all sins are equal and all of that.
Don’t patronize them. Don’t tell them that they’ll come about eventually, and most certainly do NOT tell them that they are going straight to Hell. They’re having a hard enough time as is, and they don’t need people to be constantly preaching their damnation - which is a good recipe for a relationship to become toxic in my book.
Let them know that they aren’t alone, that even if you don’t share the same experience, you are still willing to stay by their side. Open up your mind if and when they talk with you and want to discuss what’s going on, and don’t always revert to the Speech of Damnation. Chances are, they’ve heard it enough and might just need the support of a friend.
This is really all that I can think of right now, from my own perspective. I’m going through much the same thing right now, though I haven’t come out to anyone who is going to preach to me. I beat myself up enough about it, y’know? I don’t need someone constantly riding my back and trying to push their beliefs onto me. And I’m pretty sure that they don’t either.
Best of luck to you both.

Are you ever super obsessed with something for a while and then it fades out into you casually liking the thing and then something triggers it and suddenly it’s back to full blown obsession
