The weirdest thing is that people talk about “coming out” as if it’s this big momentous thing that only happens once while in actual fact it’s something that you do almost every single day every time you talk to a new person every time you’re in a new situation you’re constantly weighing your options, the ability to be your true self vs the advantages of being a false self and honestly it’s so fucking exhausting
This beyond accurate. I still get anxiety butterflies just before i answer a question about this. I never lie, but sometimes i will withhold the truth. Which is ridiculous because i am proud of my identity, but you never know when a situation will turn ugly just from you being proud of who you are.
