Will There Ever Be a Right Time?
A brief overview of my coming out story to my closest friends and family members and confronting the issue of whether there ever will be the right to time to "come-out."
"So Christian, how's college?" said my mom.
"Oh it's fine. I am just happy to be home and away from all the homework and whatnot. It's just good to be home," I replied.
"What about relationships? Do you have a girlfriendâ€¦or a boyfriend?" asked my mom.
She asked it. She actually asked it. I couldn't decide whether I was embarrassed or relieved.
"About that, I am gay. At least I think I am," as I covered my hands over my face releasing a deep sigh.
I have been confronting this issue of my sexual orientation for nearly half of my life and finally I was given the opportunity to utter those three words: I am gay.
But when is it the right time to "come out?"
To be completely honest, there is never really a right time to come out, instead I'd like to think that there are windows of opportunity.
When I came out to my family I wanted to be sure of myself and my sexuality.
So, here are the steps:
Know who you are at this point and where you stand with your sexuality.
It's always going to feel uncomfortable when you "come out" for the first time, but what feels even more uncomfortable is when you are surrounded by those who don't support you. Test the situation. Ask questions related to your sexuality.
After I came out, I immediately asked my parents if they were comfortable with my sexual orientation. I wanted to show that I truly cared about what they thought and I wanted to ensure them that they could ask any question and I would do my best to answer it.
Being gay is just a small portion of my identity. There is so much more that I have to offer, as goes for you. Know that your sexual orientation should not have absolute control over who you are.
You need to remember to put yourself first. In this situation it's all about you.
As I had mentioned earlier there's never really a "right" time to come out but instead there are windows of opportunity. It just so happened that my window of opportunity was in the car over Black Friday on our way to the fabric store.
