I haven't come out yet, just waiting until I'm completely done with college. But I'd like to know how it went for you guys? Was it difficult, great, ok? And what pushed you to make the decision? And how is your life now?
LawBringerSR2 saidI came out to my parents when I was 22. I sat them down and just told them flat out. My dad cried and my mother seemed frustrated, but they both said they'd love me no matter what. They were both raised to believe homosexuality is wrong, so the fact that they're doing everything they can to re-adjust their beliefs is pretty great.. It was one of the most awkward and difficult things I have ever done and I was one of the lucky ones.
I still struggle on a rare occasions whenever I'm faced with opposition toward my sexuality, and I still have to remind people that my sexuality is apart of me, but it doesn't define me. Overall though, I'd say I'm much happier. I wouldn't ever go back.
I guess it's just important to remember that life is too short to worry yourself with those who will or will not accept you for something as trivial as who you decide to have in your bed.
