    So, last Friday (the 21st of October), I finally came out too all of my school and college friends.. all at once :lol: I was rather drunk at the time and LGBT came up in a conversation and I just came out with it. My friends honestly didn't care and think it's great :lol: My bestfriend from school, who I was extremely worried I'd lose through coming out, told me it doesn't change anything and I honestly couldn't of had a better reaction. I spoke to my friends again in the morning (as the reactions I got were drunk reactions :lol: ) and they still all said nothing will change and they still love me <3
    I realise how incredibly lucky I am to have such an accepting family and all my friends too... I know not many people get that.
    I just wanted to say that if you're currently worried about coming out to your friends and you're worried things will change, you're not alone <3 But honestly, those who mind and think your sexuality changes things don't deserve to be in your life.
    Stay safe everyone :slight_smile:

    Maybe thats what I need to do...come out while drunk..lol. Which I am right now. But..it still might not go well. But darn I'm tired of doing this everyday. Dealing with marriage drama, arguing, yelling at each other...I just wanna be free again. You are so lucky.
