Update on coming out to dad.

After i spoke with my social worker, friends and some family members (including my older brother and his boyfriend) i have decided NOT to come out to my dad as it won't make things better for anyone and everyone i spoke too supported that but the main reason why i won't come out to him is my heart and gut are saying not to (metaphorically) and i just don't think it will do any good to come out to him.

Sounds like you made an informed decision, sonic1337111!
Reality is what you make of it. It isn't inherently good or bad. Only you can make your reality better (or worse) for yourself through your actions and your attitude.

Great! Always trust in yourself first. You are the only one truly looking out for your own best interests.

Take care.
This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
- William Shakespeare, Hamlet
