I felt ashamed of my sexuality for a long time which also caused me to be in semi-denial for years. I’ve come a long way and have gay friends I’m out to but I still feel like it takes me a while to open up about my sexuality. I think Im still partly worried about what others think and realise overcoming shame is an ongoing battle. I think because I’m also Bi and in an opposite sex relationship I also have another set of prejudices to overcome. People assume I’m straight unless I make a point of telling them otherwise and straight people don’t get why it matters how I identify and that it’s part of my identity. Any advice on how to overcome shame for good?
