Just wanna put my thoughts out there hoping to gain some personal clarity. I started coming out the last few weeks and it went ok and have definitely started getting over the constant worrying side of things now and have told everyone I was worried about there reaction and had some great responses. however I hugely suppressed even the thought of being gay. So now it’s out in the open I’m kinda confused (not in that way) but I really don’t know who I am anymore. Because the last time I remember being this honest with who I was I was about 8. So who am I now? Am I back to being mental age of 8 or am I still the person I was before. I guess I’m just struggling to discern the parts of me that are real and genuine from those that were an act and me lying to myself. I feel like I have another huge part of my personality come back to life but not sure yet where it fits in with what I already thought I was. sorry for the deep chat there I just find writing in here helps me better understand how I’m feeling.
