I am a mother of 3 and got out of an abusive marriage a year ago, I'm 22 and had been married since I was 16. More his and my parents choice than mine because it's 'just what people do'. I wasn't pregnant but any way I don't regret it, I have my beautiful children and it helped me figure out who I was. He was mentally and physically abusive and I realized I shouldn't take this anymore so I left. My parents were outraged but finally accepted it. About 6 months ago I was photographing a model for a wedding shoot and I thought she was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen. I've never had any sort of inclination towards being a lesbian before but she made my heart beat in a way I'd never felt before. After the shoot while I was packing up we got talking and I think I've never giggled that much in my life. We met up a few times before she revealed she was a lesbian and I said "that's fine" and my mind started wondering whether I was or not... Well 4 months ago we kissed and it went from there. I haven't introduced her to my children and would never unless it got serious...
So it spilled out recently when my parents saw us in a restaurant and they've literally told me to get out of town and take my children with me. They say the only reason I'm feeling this way is because I was in an abusive relationship. They've told me to stop going near her but it's hard, really hard and I don't want to lie about her. She's the second best thing in my life after my children and she's helped me get my life sorted and has helped me so much, sometimes I wonder why someone like that is with me. I don't know, I'm so confused. I was christian, now I'm not, I feel sick with myself some days but others I just feel so overwhelmingly happy... Any advice?
