It is no easy task to reveal an embarrassing truth. For a good revelation, you need to follow the following tips.
Banish the hesitation: you're not there to justify yourself or get their approval, but to break the news. To do this, prepare yourself psychologically: you need to ignore the reaction that some of your loved ones might have and just tell the truth as frankly as possible.
Make them understand that this decision is well thought out and that it makes you happy: in this way, you lessen any reactions of disappointment or even disgust from those close to you. If they care about you, they will, indeed, normally make an effort to understand you despite disagreeing.
Tell them the whole truth so that the topic does not become taboo. The best way to do this is to get them to ask you questions. Show yourself open and understanding because the news may upset those close to you. So don't expect them to get used to this idea right away.
