I Did It!!!!

I finally did it!!!

I came out to my closest girl friend (friend who is a girl) and she took it amazingly! I was really scared to do it , so I wrote a really long letter (800 words) and sent it to her. It was hard for me to hit the send button, so i closed my eyes while i did it. we talked for a long time before and after, and all i can say is that i am OUT AND PROUD!

now the next part is my parents, but that can wait a while.

Re: I Did It!!!!

Congratulations!! The first is always the hardest (well, apart from parents and the like), but for now at least you have one supporter that you can talk to in the flesh - this makes a big difference!! I always find I need a gap between coming-outs because they're so exhausting, so give yourself a break and enjoy your achievement!! And I am so glad that it went well!!

Re: I Did It!!!!

Thanks everyone for your support. It feels like a 3,000,000-pound weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. But I know that there are a few of them left on there. So one person is enough for right now.

Plus, I just realized something! Since I came out to a girl, we can talk about hot guys and she won't think I'm weird!
