Seventh Day Adventist
I decided to seek advice from my aunt who was the only family member I had told. I thought because she was my mom’s sister she would know how to tell her something she did not want to hear without her getting extremely mad. I called my aunt while my girlfriend was laying on my lap. My aunt knew I was in a relationship and she let me know that it would be best I only tell them my sexuality. She told me telling them I was bisexual and that I was in a relationship would not be a good idea. My aunt told me to break up with my girlfriend. I in no way ever wanted to break up with her, but I did. I thought that would be the right thing; for my aunt to decide for me and tell me breaking up with her was a good thing.
Fortunately, I have learned my religion and sexuality do not have to be in conflict. That I can be a bisexual Seventh-Day Adventist. It took quite some time and a whole lot of tears, but I am happy with my sexuality and with my religion. Having others define me is what caused so much heart break , but if it did not happen the way it did I do not think I would be as happy as I am with myself as I am
