Giving Up, Please Help

This is my first post on here so I hope this works. I'm a bisexual male, getting ready for my last year of high school. About 6 months ago, I was jumped which resulted in serious plastic surgery. I've healed physical but haven't mentally and emotionally. I'm scared to go to school to see this kid, I'm scared to tell my family about my sexuality, I'm scared about tell my friends and most importantly, I'm scared of what's going to happen in the future. The fact that I'm in this gray area of bisexuality is the most confusing part. It would be a lot easier to just be gay or straight but the fact that I don't know what I want is so frustrating. I want to have a wife and kids so badly but I'm afraid that my sexuality will come in the way of ny relationship and ruin it. I've had a friend since I was young who is also bisexual and now that we're discovering out sexuality, things have become awkward and weird. He has a girlfriend, I want a girlfriend. I don't know what to do anymore. I know I'm young and I'm probably overthinking but I'm gonna have to deal with it one day. I can pretend these teenage years are great and I'm going to have a fantastic life ahead of me but I'm also preparing myself for life which I know will not be easy. I know that I definetly do not have it nearly as worse as the other people on this website but I can't overcome these fears. I appreciate all of the help in advance and I wish the best of luck to you all

If I was you I would take this thing step by step. First off I would highly recommend opening up to your friends and family. As difficult as this seems the outcome could be quite positive, we live in a day and age where people are very open minded. If you don't then you will be repressing a part of who you are, but once it's all out in the open you will feel at ease. I wouldn't worry about whether or not you'll get married quite yet, as cheesy as this may seem the answer will come to you in time.
