Coming Out

Does it get easier? Is it still difficult for anyone who reads this blog to come out to people?

It is for me. I don’t necessarily introduce myself as a Lesbian because that’s not what I want people to focus on when they get to know me. I have one friend who I’ve known for about 5 years, but doesn’t know I’m a Lesbian. I kinda want to let her know, but I’m afraid to. I have no means to judge how she feels either way about LGBT rights or LGBT folks in general. Our friendship blossomed through work; she was our bookkeeper for about 4 years and would come in once a week to pay bills and take care of other stuff. Her husband is also our CPA. We’ve done stuff together outside the office a handful of times.

I know it shouldn’t matter whether people accept me as a Lesbian or not, but friends are extremely important to me and it would hurt if I was rejected like that. I haven’t ever been, yet, but I’m sure there will come a time…
