My Coming Out Process: Step 1

1,478 views

Like most people, coming out has been a timely process, and I'm just talking about preparing for it. I made a promise to myself two years ago that I would come out to my parents by the time I was 20. Here's the fun part. I turn 20 NEXT MONTH. orangu1 It's not even about the goal anymore, but rather I feel that the time is coming. Today at an appointment with my psychiatrist, we got to talking about politics and particularly Donald Trump and his feud with Rosie O'Donnell. My psychiatrist was talking about Rosie's strained relationship with her daughter and wondered if her daughter might have homophobic tendencies, and I kinda blurted out "that's something I wanna talk to my parents about. Coming out". It was that moment that for the first time ever, I've told someone in real life that I'm gay. We talked a lot about coming out and she told me that from the times she's talked to my mom (my mom also sees her for other reasons) that my mom always seems proud of me and that she doesn't think that my parents will have a problem with it. She reassured me that no matter what my parents' initial reaction is, that things will will work out in the end. She was so supportive and I really feel like I've took a major step for myself and that I'm finally starting this journey I've wanted to start for a very long time now. 

 

I also must must thank all of you on FOTP. Being able to talk to all of you on here, I haven't felt alone with my sexuality considering I live in the Bible Belt. I hope that soon I'm able to post part 2 with my parents' reaction, and I hope that part 2 is filled with good news.

Once you tell someone, like a friend, then it becomes extremely easy to come out to your parents! and anyone in general jj3

When I first read this, I didn't see the date and was about to be like "But your birthday is this month queen orangu1 " 

 

But I am pretty positive that whenever you do decide to do it, your parents will be okay with it. I had the same anticipation in terms of how my parents would feel since I knew they loved me a lot, and I was right, they were cool with me being gay.
