Hi All, New here, and really love the fact i've come across such a great, supportive and relevant site! You can only imagine the bittersweet feeling of knowing i'm not the only human being on the planet who has had the joy of coming out and having every emotion under the sun as a result. In my early 30's and I came out to my mother last week, and a friend as well. Luckily they both were super supportive, my friend was fairly indifferent, she didn't see the big deal but DID bring up the fact that i've never been in a serious relationship with a girl...I guess a lot of people questioned me throughout, I had anxiety, guilt, shame , confusion , and doubt, as well as a lot of rumination and beating myself up over mistakes i've made over the years. I know I can be happy with a man but I have no idea how i'm even going to get to that stage of dating or seeing someone. I've blocked it out for so long that now I feel like I am questioning who I am. How can I go through these 'emotions' whilst getting through every day life? I hope some of it makes sense and I look forward to hearing about your experiences too!.
