yeah things are hard right now i know that gossip is short lived as stated above but can also have a lasting impact. in a way you don't realize yet it may help others who feel this way see you. they may have felt previously alone and fettered considering the issue as well. you can help them i think. has anyone been more interested in you who didnt show interest before? stay away from religious people whose ignorance taints peace and wisdom, we are still seeking a cure for religious fanatics extreme and corrupt behavior.
I think you feel this way because you are worried about other people judging you and seeing you differently with this new information. Totally normal to feel that way, I did too when I was your age. I know kids can be cruel. But keep in mind that this will pass. Anyone who makes a big deal out of such a natural, beautiful thing has not yet reached maturity. They are blindly following what society has taught them about anything NOT heterosexual being wrong, and their judgments are crap! Be you, love you and all else will follow.
Also, remember our feelings are our greatest teachers. You don't have to feel guilty or stupid for feeling the way you do - the feelings have shown themselves to you for a reason. See what they want you to know and how you can grow from them :)
Gosh, you're kinda down on yourself...not even sure exactly what you feel but sure you shouldn't feel this way! I think we all feel embarrassed whenever acquaintances, people who are not our closest friends, find out something intimate about us, such as a feeling of attraction for somebody. Just remember all of the stuff THEY would be embarrassed if anyone knew.
A long time friend of mine used to tell me a story about a cousin he had during his childhood in rural Tennessee. This cousin liked to play weird practical jokes. For a while, he would walk down the main street of the town on Sunday morning after church let out and confront people this way: He'd jump in front of someone, glare at that person, then lean down close to them and half-whisper, "Was it worth it?!" Then he'd walk away.
Everyone he confronted reacted strongly. Some people said, "How did you find out?!" Some said, "I didn't mean it, really, I was drunk!" Or: "Look, it was only one time. Please don't tell my wife!"
Everyone has some things they hope others never discover about them; you are not alone.
And by the time this message has posted on here, believe me, they will all be busy talking about someone else; gossip has a very short life.
you are what you are and be proud if it !!!!
You are what you are as l said be proud of been you !!
Is this a paragraph from a J.D. Salinger novel?
Fair enough - it's about 25 years since I read it!
Because other people don't get it or are hiding their own homosexuality. Don't fear it - feel it! I'm bi too and I got over everyone else's opinions :)
Well whatever you are or aren't don't fight it because that won't work and will make you feel much, much worse. Trust me!
whatever you are is okay. keep in mind that there is absolutely no reason why you have to identify as a specific sexuality! grouping people into separate sexualities is a uniquely human thing. homosexuality exists in animals and nature too, do you think they worry about labeling themselves as bi-curious or gay or whatever? because it doesn't matter. we are all beautiful creatures. to quote Betty Dodson, if you must identify as something, call yourself a "heterosexual, bisexual lesbian". :) You don't have to lump yourself into one narrow category and BE THAT for the rest of your life.
Why shouldn't you be bi-curious?
Of course they do! But you are allowed to feel like **** becuase it is a vulnerable time. But you'll get stronger
