I saw a really annoying anti lesbian tweet and I just couldn't hold my silence anymore. I wanted to be able to express myself on Twitter (I have some family on there) about lesbian related stuff openly. I realized the only way I could do that was to come out.
So, I came out on Twitter first and then to family and friends on Facebook.
I feel kind of bad for not telling my parents and my sister (I live with them) in person first, but I'm just glad that I finally came out!
I'm 28 and I've been thinking about coming out since I was 23. I never felt like any time was right and I was just never sure on how to say it. I actually talked to my therapist last year about my anxiety related to coming out. I didn't think it would be such an impulsive decision.
I feel this weird anxiety despite getting positivity from everyone so far. It feels so strange, but freeing at the same time!
