Honesty, Family, Love. A pedophile must choose only two or lose all three.
No. I have been honest with my family. They all still love me. My father came to visit me the week that I got my tour of duty in the clink. He asked if I wanted him to get me a lawyer. I said no. I asked if he read the charges against me. He said yes. I told him they were true. He just said, "Ok. Do you have a public lawyer?"
For most of my life, my father and I were... distant, emotionally. To this day, I cannot tolerate authority figures. (I enjoy fighting them!) But, that day, he and I became very close. No, we don't talk about my history. But daily life we are closer.
It just depends on the circumstances. I am lucky. I could have been disowned.
