Coming out - my story

Hello everyone,

Just thought to share this. I''ve posted on this forum before (I''m a gay).
I came out to my parents last week and to a friend. There are still some friends I want to come out to this week.
I was pleasantly surprised and blown away by my parents reaction. I was preparing myself for the worst. I was so depressed and anxious about it.
I wrote them a letter to explain the situation. They don''t reject or judge me. They said that nothing changes and they still love me. I feel so relieved. This was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life.
If I can do it, then anyone can.

Good luck.
