His Tragic Best Friend’s Christian Parents Disowned Her for Being Bisexual, but When He Didn’t Tell Them That She’d Died, They Accused Him of Being Selfish

A young man recently reached out to ask if he was wrong to keep the death of his best friend from the parents who abandoned her. Here’s his story.

They were BFFs

“I had a childhood best friend, Luna,” the 22-year-old began. “We were very close. She lived across from me, and we even went to the same school.”

They loved each other

“I loved her so much, and she was honestly there for me in times where no one was. She was the sister I never had.”

The man explained that Luna had been raised in a very strict Christian household, and this had led to problems as Luna grew up.

When Luna was 17, she came out to her parents as bisexual. They immediately disowned her and kicked her out of their house. She ended up living with the man and his family for awhile. When she was 18, she began working hard in various jobs to support herself.

The man still got angry when he remembered how unfairly his best friend had been treated. She’d ended up living in a single-room apartment and, unable to afford college, ended up working at McDonald’s and as a stripper.

Two months ago, the man received the devastating news that Luna had died. He wasn’t comfortable sharing the cause of death, but it was safe to say that he was absolutely heartbroken.

The man and Luna’s other friends clubbed together to pay for Luna’s funeral. It was a small service, and there was no sign of her parents, who hadn’t wanted to know about their daughter since the day they kicked her out.

Last week, the man was surprised to receive a call from Luna’s parents, asking after their daughter. They told him that they’d been doing a lot of soul-searching and wanted to reconcile with their daughter.

The man broke the news that their daughter was dead. At first, they didn’t believe him, but then they became enraged, demanding to know why they hadn’t been told earlier. They would have helped with the funeral. They said that had they known Luna’s circumstances, they might even have been able to prevent her death.

Luna’s parents branded the man selfish for not telling them, and while part of him thought they were simply suffering the consequences of their actions, another part of him wondered if he should have told them about their daughter’s death earlier.

He asked the internet

With Luna’s parents depressed and on the verge of mental breakdowns, the man asked the internet for their thoughts.

Everyone sympathized with man. “Not your place to be in contact with them,” stated one. “They had years to reach out, and by the time they did, it was too late. Sorry for your loss, but this is not on you.”

“I am sad for Luna’s parents,” said another. “We don’t always react as we should. This is a clear case of acting in haste and repenting at leisure. But they brought this upon themselves, and this is a direct and easily foreseen consequence of their actions.”
