I recently came out to my parents as aro/ace, but they've been somewhat… reluctant to accept it. Do I have to "prove" myself to them, or will they just never accept me for what I am?
Hi! Coming out to the family is never easy. My best advice is to just give it time. I never “proved” it to my parents, but they have eventually come to accept my sexuality. Acceptance and full understanding isn’t always immediate. Take it in stride. I hope the tides calm for you.
