So after 6 years of questioning my sexuality, I have come to realise that I am not bisexual but instead a lesbian. Confusion, denial and circumstances prevented me from accepting that I am fully gay. By labelling myself as bisexual, it allowed me to hide and conceal my true feelings. However, this inevitably prevented me from seeking true happiness because I was pretending to be something I was not.
I have come out to my closest friends and hope to come out to my parents soon. I wish you all good luck in you're journey to acceptance because it can be long, painful and riddled with hurdles but when you've reached the finish line, that's when you will be truly happy.
I don't have a cute or soppy coming out story because the most difficult person to come out to was myself. As a Catholic, I have been forced to adopt strong beliefs against homosexuality by my highschool teachers and so I viewed my homosexuality as a sin.
However, despite still identifying as Catholic, I believe that God doesn't hate homosexuals but instead places us on earth to test others commitment to "love thy neighbour". Coming out is a rollercoaster of a journey but it's a personal journey that only you can control and ride. There will be low points but there will also be high. No story is the same (apart from maybe those twin brothers from YouTube who came out to their dad) and that's what makes coming out so special. Never do it if you're not ready. There have been plenty of opportunities for me to come out to my mum but I still don't quite feel ready and that ok. There's no rush and no expectations. This is my life and I'm in the drivers seat.
I hope you enjoyed my little story ~C 🌈♀♂⚢⚣⚦♁⚤⚥⚧🌈 #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqpride #lgbtquotes #lesbian #gay #bisexual #equality #pansexual #queer #genderfluid #transgender #genderneutral #gayrights #love #loveislove #equality #lgbtcommunity #questioning #homosexual #homosexuality #nonbinary #asexual #support #feminist #lovewins
