If your parents love you and care for your happiness, your orientation won't make a difference to them, they'll only want to see you happy! You can try to explain how you feel and tell them about how you found it out, share your emotions with them, be open-hearted. If your brother is bi too, you can also tell him and get his precious support!

Coming out can be a very stressful thing. Take your time, only come out when you're ready. Tell your parents that you have something important to discuss with them. Then tell them in whatever way makes you feel comfortable. Remind them that you love them and give them time to process. If they don't accept you right away, remove yourself before anything gets too hurtful. They are your parents and will love you no matter who you love. Take some time to prepare yourself as much as you need. Rushing yourself can lead to more stress. And remember that no matter who you love, you should always be treated equally. And that shouldn't change.
