Those months have been nerve wracking, as I tried to work out how to tell my Dad, with my original intent being to tell him after I'd moved out... however with situations changing, and having talked things over with a large number of friends, I finally sat down with him about a half hour ago and finally told him... Despite our differences I still have too much respect for him not to tell him.
I'm happy to report that he took it very well. There'll be things we won't agree on, but he was very cool with it...
He put it best, actually, by simply saying:
It's a bit surprising... but not the end of the world.
It's a huge relief, almost as big as when I told all my friends... I don't say this often enough, but I love my Dad.
