How To Deal

I have known since the beginning that I am a lesbian female. The subject is so touchy but I have been in a relationship with a woman. Problem is that only 2 people know the truth. My ex girlfriend in which the relationship ended badly and a good friend of mine who we messed around but we are only friends to this day.

Does anyone have any advice as to why its so hard for me to tell people I am a lesbian? Most of my friends pretty much know already. iI have lost a few friends because they know and basically dropped my friendship.. guess they didnt accept it. Why after all these years are people still so close minded and not accepting?? It makes it so hard to be me and who I really am. Most the time when my close friends I deny it because I dont want to loose all my friends.

anyone feel the same? Offer advice or experiences?

You are so right. Rejection breaks my heart but I've already made up my mind that I'm not hiding anymore. I'm not going to change myself for friends who are ignorant and don't understand what I'm going through. They missing out on an awesome friend and I've picked up some new friends along the way who love me for me. Thanka for the advice and happy Friday!!!

I thinks it's hard for you because you just want to be accepted and don't like rejection! But you must stay true to yourself, despite of the reaction you get from people.
