More recently, I clued in that it was usually about coming-out stuff. Ever since I started this process of figuring myself out, the steps were always pretty obvious (figure out what I am, tell one person, tell another person, tell the important people at school, come out at home...).
But now that I'm out, that's kind of where my process ends. I mean, I'm sure somewhere on my to-do list is find a boyfriend, but while I'd like one being in a relationship was never "urgent" to me.
Honestly, and I feel stupid for writing this, but it feels like my mind is oddly empty. Like I sucked up so much brainpower thinking about being gay and coming out that I don't know what to do with myself. I mean, what do normal people even think about? All I keep thinking about now is how little I have to think about.
I really don't know what to do. I'm ecstatic that I'm out, but where do I go from here?
I actually feel kind of similarly right now for a different reason. After going through a recent big break up, I just kind of sit around feeling like I don't have a lot to do or think about. I mean, I used to text them nonstop, my thoughts, emotions, etc. and now I just kind of don't know what to do with myself.
I've occupied myself by starting a new show on Netflix, but now I'm already through all of Breaking Bad in just like a week >.<
Take up a hobby, spend time with friends, do whatever you enjoy. And if you want you can always get involved in an LGBT program and help other people dealing with coming out or other issues.
