This is a very difficult thing to deal with. I have a relatively liberal family (mostly here in Califonia, you know, all us hippies :P) and I am pretty open about my lifestyle with those who accept it, but some others, like my step mom, it is better to not try and push the issue because it just makes her distraught. I know it is troubling not to have the support of the people you love. They probably worry about you (or would worry if they knew) because they have a set idea about what is right and wrong.

I am lucky to feel very strongly about my ideals so I can fight with confidence for what I believe to be right, but it is a different story when you are uncertain the correct path.
