6 Months

About six months have pasted since I came out and my whole life has changed. Coming out in April, there was no possible way of knowing what would happen in those six months. For the first time every I am able to be the true me and it is fabulous! Telling people was hard at first but it got easier over time. Now lots of people know I am gay and they all accept me for who I am. I have made amazing friendships from just coming out to people. In June, I had my first romance experience with another guy and it was unforgettable. To be able to see a guy and not worry about people finding out was a wonderful feeling. But it shortly ended and I was brokenhearted. Even though I wished for it to continue on. I realized that our circumstances were too different and we could not have a good realsionship. It was hard to let go but with time I was able to and now were just good friends. I have amazing memories that will stay with me for a life time and who knows....we could have another chance together..... but I don't think anytime soon. Happiness, sadness, confusion, love, pain, sorrow and joyousness were some of the feelings I felt over the six months. Even though the pain might have been unbearable or the happiness to great to let go, I realized that what happens when you actually live. The past six months have changed me and there is no going back but I would never want to go back. I have one more year in high school, which I am going to make the best of, then off the college which I can't wait for!
