Thanks to the few of you who responded to my last blog, written at oh...1 am, a few nights ago. I am feeling better... I've decided that a large part of me being uncomfortable with being gay is due to the fact that:
1)I'm the only "newbie" in the GLB group I hang out with on-campus...they haven't had a support session in about 2 months or so, and
2) all my friends in the dorm/my classes are straight, and they don't know I'm gay. As a result, I'm constantly being reminded about how I'm different every time they talk about the guys the like and whatnot. This is the first time in my life I've really diverged from the "norm"...and I guess I'm just not dealing with it well, especially since it's not really anything I can control.
I'm going on a retreat this next weekend given by campus ministry, and I'm hoping it'll help me out a bit. (One can hope, at least).
Also, I'm wondering if I would actually feel better telling all my friends...I mean, I'm sure I would, most people say they feel quite liberated once they're out...I'm just wondering if it's time for me to come out to people. I could start with my friend whom I practically did come out to...she know's I'm going on the GLB & Friends retreat.
Hmm...I think some deep thinking and perhaps some prayer is called for. Unfortunately, I'm really bad about making myself talk to people even when I know it'll make things better. (It took me about 3 miserable weeks to come out to my RA)
Anyone have any advice on coming out to friends? It's kind of an odd topic to just bring up out of the blue...
