Hello everyone! I'm keeping this short & to the point.

I'd like to thank this site in aiding in my journey to coming out as gay to my parents yesterday. I'm glad it is over with and I'm certainly satisfied with how things are going, and they took it well.

I just want other people to know who are out there struggling with it, that you need to make sure you follow through when you get the feeling that it may be the right time. It's not fun to constantly hide in the shadows like I had for at least 3 years. You definitely come out stronger and prove to yourself and to other people that you are strong through accepting yourself even when it feels like societal norms are against you.

I still feel sort of weird about it, but it definitely feels like a bit of a weight has been lifted. It's kinda strange but at the same time, calming.

Just thought I'd share.
