Well I'm 17 years old .. yea I might be young but I've been dealing with depression since I was around 7 when I realized that I was attracted to the same sex. I didn't gain depression due to that , I gained it because I've been hiding it from my father that is against individuals loving their same sex .. its sad

I feel your pain in so many ways. Let me reassure you that you are here on earth for a reason and you must exercise courage and live your life fully. You need to worry about telling your father or family anything. Parents usually know anyway. Surprisingly, my father was more accepting than my mother. Focus on loving yourself, being kind to yourself, respecting yourself, as these things must happen within you before they can happen outside of you. No one can tell you when the right time is to tell your father. Until such time, practice loving yourself more and more
