Coming Out To Everyone

, | Hopeless | November 14, 2016

(I have just come out to my mom and am about to come out to my friend Mira via text. Turns out I got the wrong number and the following conversation happens.)

Me: “Hi, this is [My Name].”

Person: “[My Name]?”

Me: “Yep! So I’ve been thinking a lot and decided to come out. I’m bi!

(Ten minutes later.)

Me: “Mira?”

Person: “Sorry, but this isn’t Mira. I believe you have the wrong number. But I am SO proud of you for coming out! Honestly, it’s probably one of the hardest things to do, but I am SO proud. And you may never know me, but I more than 100% support you! It’s not going to be easy, girly, but I know you are strong enough to be able to go through this. Remember, when life gets tough, just know, you are tougher than that! Always remember who you are darling, even when others doubt you and tell you that you must have ‘mistaken’ or you’re at a ‘stage,’ you know yourself best. Listen to your heart! I support you 100%! And sorry for not telling you that you got the wrong number right away. You might be angry because you just texted a total stranger about something that is quite personal to you. Sorry again about that.”

Me: “Oh, my god, thank you so much. That gave me so much confidence! I feel a lot better about the whole thing!”

(Needless to say, that person shed light on my day. And yes, I did come out to my friend and she was super supportive. Person, wherever you are, thank you.)
