Being Gay in School
So when I came out to my friends at school they stopped wanting to hang around me. They were all females and they didn’t want to hang around me because they all thought I had a crush on them. 6 months later I told them I wasn’t anymore just so they would except me. So I hid my being bisexual for another year, but what I hadn’t realized was that I was gay not bi.
I had no friends in school. It could have been because I was gay so EVERYONE thought I was weird and didn’t want to talk to me. And so I cried everyday at lunch. So then there was another reason kids at school didn’t want to be my friend. Who wants to be friends with someone who always cries??? No one apparently. It’s a wonder I didn’t kill myself because of this. I’m surprised I didn’t. But I’m also glad I didn’t.
