i was just wondering... it seems to me that a lot of people once they come out feel a weight come off their shoulters, right? sorta like being set free. i've never felt that way, even tho i'm out to my family and friends now. and i think i figured out why. i never really came out. i was outed. i wasn't ready for them to know when they found out. but it happened. and now i've got to deal with it. i think the process of coming out is more a process of becoming comfortable enough with yourself and your sexuality to tell people than a process of getting the courage to tell them. maybe i'm wrong here, but it's the only thing that makes sense to me, considering how i feel about my sexuality and how i keep trying to hide myself... and how uncomfortable i am when others bring it up.
what are your thoughts on the subject? i think it'd be interesting to hear other people's opinions on this.
