Coming out to friends
What is it about human nature that pushes someone to reveal something personal to a close friend? Is it to explain your behavior to someone? To relieve the stress of holding something personal inside? Sometimes telling someone that you are quite different can be a dangerous thing, since you might not know how they will accept the news. Will they be open to your feelings? Will they be scared, or disgusted? It can be a risky move. Over the last few months, my feelings about my feminine side couldn’t be kept secret anymore. I wanted to let other people know that Katie existed. Is it selfish? Is it too much of a burden to put on a friend? All I can say is that I’ve received amazing support from the few close friends I’ve opened up to. A close friend should be there to listen to your thoughts and provide support when you need it. Even though these friends are open minded, I was still very nervous in telling them about my deepest feelings. I think I can honestly say that those friendships have grown stronger as a result of opening up to them. Thank you friends.
Anyways, have a happy Friday, enjoy an adult beverage responsibly, and have a great weekend.
