What small sign of support have you seen?

Quit often we hear stories of how people come out or worse are forced out
And terrible things happen
It's pride month
So let's share some stories of times when people have given us hope and small or large tokens of support

For me, it's when my mom finally started using my pronouns, and then correcting other family members when they refused to use them
It means a lot to me when she does this!
❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Please read all of this before you respond and / or judge!!
My young adult son just recently informed me that he has a boyfriend. I am struggling quite a bit with this, because I believe that anything other than 1 man and 1 woman is wrong. However, even though I don't approve of non-straight relationships, I still want to be supportive of my son (and, as difficult as this is for me to say right now, his partner too).
I believe the Bible says homosexual relationships are wrong; but I also don't believe that Jesus would have treated homosexuals poorly either. I have an incredibly soft heart and am a naturally compassionate person. I try really hard to treat others as I would want to be treated, but I'm having a hard time "getting over" the fact that I still feel this is wrong. My son knows this about me, and tries to be respectful by not shoving stuff about it in my face. I worry though that if or when his partner (whether the current partner, who lives in a different state, or a future partner) is around it will become a lot more difficult for me. Can anyone offer any advice / suggestions / ect that could potentially help me accept this? I truly do want my son to feel as though I'm supporting him!

Gaslighting/Guilt/Lies #Depression

I was having a better day then my housemate aggressively started saying I hadn't given them money, it was a smaller thing so I gave cash instead of my main payment into their account. There was a massive argument and I think they're trying to gaslight and con me because they know I have mental health problems, but I never forget debts, I get too guilty to do that. Makes me sad that now I'm going to have to bank transfer for even the small amount or they will try and take advantage. This person wants to control me and its their house so there's a under feeling that they can do what they want because they no how difficult it is for me to find somewhere. I'm so fed up of always falling for when they gaslight me so I look the unreasonable one but they find so many ways to make things up and make me the bad person.#Depression
