The fear of being closeted, Anonymous (16)

No one knows I’m gay. A majority of my friends are guys and they’re all pretty homophobic (or at least act like it) I’m terrified to come out, but I can’t live in the closet anymore. I want to experience love the way all my friends do. I can’t help the way I am. This is just the way I was born and I hate having to fake who I am to people I love. I’m terrified of losing my friends, they mean so much to me and the thought of losing it all over something as simple as who I like is so scary. I know I’m not the only teen struggling with this, we all do. To any straight people reading this, the amount of fear, self hatred, and general baggage that comes with being born this way is very overwhelming. If you have a friend who comes out as gay. Accept them. And if you have a friend who you think might be gay, drop hints that you will accept them if they ever decide to come out. If you really love them, you would love them regardless.

From one LGBT person to another, don’t come out unless you know you are safe. Don’t forget you’re not alone. Best wishes :)
