My coming out story

Today is National Coming Out Day so I’d thought I could maybe share my little gay story. I always knew I was different when I was a kid but I just brushed it off. As I got older I started to notice how hot girls were but I still had an attraction to guys. I was confused and I didn’t know I could like both. So as I got into high school everyone had boyfriends and everyone always told me why I didn’t have one. I wasn’t really feeling any connections to any dudes so low key I met some girl and it was way different. But I was still hiding a big part of myself to my friends. I felt terrible for hiding who I really was, and I was not happy. Senior year came along and I felt more comfortable with my sexuality and I finally told my closets friends! Of course they were supportive so I told other friends I could trust. Finally, I was genuinely happy because I knew who I was for the first time in my life. But still a lot of people don’t believe I can like guys and girls which is strange from my perspective. At the moment I have a girlfriend, so they assume I’m lesbian. No I’m not. Just because I’m dating a girl doesn’t mean I’m a lesbian now. My sexuality doesn’t change. That’s who I identify as. But I just want others to feel comfortable in their own skin. I know it’s scary to come out, but once you do you finally set yourself free from your own prison.
