Day 5: How did your family react to you being non-monogamous?
Well, fairly well. At least my immediate family (see the stories from yesterday’s entry). As for my extended family, I’m not out to them yet, but it is the plan – as I mentioned, that’s something I’m planning to work on in therapy.
My chosen family reacted well, but that’s probably because most of them are poly as well or poly accepting – turns out when you cultivate a particular mindset and are very open about who you are and how you identify with them, the non-accepting ones tend to weed themselves out.
