I came out 2 weeks ago!

Okay so this isn't really an 'advice giving' coming out story, but it might help someone so I wanted to share it :)

So 2 weeks ago I decided to come out to my parents (a very impulsive decision, I also only came out to be with a boy but it didn't work out sadly enough).

I went down to the kitchen while my parents were in the living room watching tv. I was really freaking out and my heart was going crazy while I waited in the kitchen. Then my mom said she would go to bed so I went to the living room and told them I had something to say. My parents were obviously very curious because they had no idea what I possible would have to say in just a serious way.

I said I was gay (and met a boy). They were a bit shocked but also not super surprised (as I'm not the most masculine guy). They said they were very proud of me to come out, hugged me and asked me some questions.

So basically I was freaking out for nothing and they accepted me completely and I honestly feel so much more free even though I am only out to them.

The reason I wanted to share my story is because I knew my parents would be accepting. They had said many times before they accepted lgbt people and didn't understand why someone would have anything against them. They asked me some times before if I was (I denied) and said that if I was I could always tell them. But even though I knew they would be accepting I was still scared shitless for no reason at all.

I'm not sure if this will help someone but I guess what I'm trying to say is that even though you think someone won't accept you, it's probably your head playing with you. (This is different of course if they said homophobic things of course.)

Thanks for reading and have a great day/night
