I am so glad that I am me and I am not embarrassed by who I am.

For 30 years I have kept who I am silent. I have tried to change for many people, but never was able to change, and I felt horrible for it. I felt like something was wrong with me. Maybe I had mental issues, or maybe I was just crazy, or insane.

No. None of that.

For the first time in 30 years, I am PROUD to say this about myself. And I am NOT embarrassed by it, nor do I think myself crazy or insane.

I am a lesbian.

I just came out to some family members today. A few of them have disowned me, which I expected, to be honest. They are the ones I tried to change for. The rest of them weren't shocked at all, just laughed, said okay, about time you said something, and we went on with our conversations.

I feel so much better! I know it sounds silly, and probably childish, but I feel like a boulder has been lifted from me! For the first time in a LONG time, I feel free to be ME. I don't have to change, or conform to something that someone else wants me to be.

I AM ME AND I AM PROUD!!!

I just feel so much less stress already. Probably sounds so weird, doesn't it?

Some of my family, yes. Me? No. Never been. Never will be.

Do you and be you or you will hate your life.

Forgive ignorant, hurtful, family and friends and keep moving forward.

Congrats & GOOD FOR YOU!   My brother became a much happier person once he came out.  It's so hard to live 2 lives or try to tap down who you are to make others happy.

Feeling proud of yourself because of who you are is an amazing feeling. Congrats for being brave enough to take that step and I'm so happy for you!
