I'm 17, raised into a Christian family since birth. And lately I've been having just some thoughts about myself like. I feel myself attracted to girls, but I always actually like guys. But there's a nag at my brain screaming at me to get out. a gay friend once told me "you can never be sure until you have sex with someone of each gender." but that disturbs me because I believe in abstinence. My mother is my best friend, she's the least judgmental person I know and has always helped me through thick and thin (which has been A LOT of times) and she says in general that she supports gay/lesbian/bi but what if it were me? Would she feel the same way? I want to ask her for help while I explore myself in this but I'm just nervous and don't know what to do.
