After coming out to the third person (“The lesbian friend“), I’ve felt more comfortable. I don’t look at coming out with as much embarrassment or anxiety, I look at it more as a notification of sexual preferences. A very casual acknowledgement. Maybe it’s because this friend took my coming out very casually that I feel so calm. My other two friends that I previously came out to focused on trying to reassure me — which I desperately needed — but I don’t need that so much anymore. I can just say that I’m gay and not have to worry about my emotions, because they’re all positive.
