Partially Out

I've come to terms with my sexuality and I'm out to some friends. I'm not out to my family and some of my really close friends. Not being completely honest about part of who I am is getting really draining. They deserve to know, but I never know how to bring it up. However, I'm getting up my nerve, I just need to make a leap. It's just nerve-wrecking putting yourself out there and being judged about something you didn't choose. It's just a small part of who I am, but I do need to be honest about it to the people I care about the most.

Good luck with everything, devilsadvocateandrea. It's difficult feeling like you need to be private about your life. Take care and I hope things turn out well with your parents!

I have come out to a few people. My two best friends and my oldest daughter. My parents do not know though I think my mom suspects....hell my dad still wont acknowledge his little girl has sex period. LOL! I think my mom will go either way when I tell her...she will either freak out and have a meltdown and want to get an exorcism done or not care in the least. I feel it will be option one, though I wish for option two. Keeping things from them isn't too hard, I have always been very private about my life. Congrats to Bobbie too. Man the steps we take just to be happy in our own skin! God bless you both!!

Thanks Bobbie! Congrats on coming out to your sister! Hopefully it went well.

It's hard to be completely honest with others you don't know how their going to react. I’ve just came out to my sister about my being transgender it was very hard, but it’s something we all need to do. The best of luck I hope everything works out for you. Reminder what ever happens you’re a very wonderful person in Gods eyes.<br />
