My Recent Journey (2011)
Well… I have been down lately and my friends noticed. I couldn’t look them in the eyes and stuff like that. Then I decided that I should tell someone why I was feeling down, so I told one of my best friends Jess, she told me she was proud of me. Then I found out that she had a secret too. After a while, I told two more of my friends and they were happy for me and were supportive. That brings us to the week that just passed.
I was anxious because I started to become really good friends with a girl that I kinda liked (and this is the first time I’m admitting it) and I was worried that if she found out I liked her, or even liked girls, that the friendship that I found would go down the tube. So I sat down with my friends and we were just chillin’. As most of the group got up to play soccer, me and a couple of my friends were watching from the sidelines. I was a little out of it that day and she asked me what was wrong.
I said that if I told her she’d probably hate me and then my friend that I came out to previously asked if she wanted me to have her tell my other friend, I agree’d. So when she came back she dragged me up and told me (at this time I’m crying) that no matter what she’s never gonna judge me for who I am. About 5 minutes later my friend Jess came up to me and gave me a hug and told me that I am brave for coming out to people and that I shouldn’t be sad because I have a lot of things going for me.
So here we are “now,” it’s slowly getting easier and I know that I shouldn’t be ashamed for who I am and I shouldn’t hide it anymore. My friends are the best and most supportive people I’ve ever met!!! I’m gay and proud of it!
