So I did it, last night after posting here, I came out to my daughter and the response could not have been better. It was hard, I was in tears the whole time and kept apologizing to her as I felt like I was taking her dad from her, not sure if that is a normal thing or just me, but it was very cathartic. I did not realize until that moment how heavy the burden that carrying this inside of me was, just crazy to think about it. We cried a lot and she kept reassuring me that she loved me no matter what and was happy for me. It was hard to say the words to her, this is only the second time that I have and the first did not go down so well at all but the result was more than I hoped for as I had thought she would take the time to process the news but she was just pure acceptance with nothing but love in her heart for me, it was very moving. I told her that nothing was going to change right away and we have some other issues to get through right now but I just wanted her to know, to say the words out loud. It felt good.
