I went to my uni's first Pride meeting and it didn't go as well as I had planned. When it was my turn to introduce myself and say why I was there, I just couldn't bring myself to say that I'm gay. I'm a baby gay and I've come out to my small group of friends, but I still find it hard to come out to a group of strangers. Plus my crush was unexpectedly there and it made me even more nervous. I feel awful 😭 everyone was easily able to state their label except me. I suck :/ don't I?
No you don’t. You were incredibly brave. You came out to your friends, you went to your first Pride meeting - you are brave. I actually think you are amazing, and I am SO proud of you.
Take baby steps. It’s okay, and no one will hate you for it (and if they do, they do not deserve you). This is your own story, your own life, your own path. Take it one step at a time. You’re doing amazing by accepting yourself and surrounding yourself with your friends.
We all support you and love you, don’t forget that. Your entire community is here for you. All the love ! <333
