How is everyone doing tonight? I am doing pretty well actually. I decided to tell my cousin first before I told anyone else, because she is one of my best friends. She took the news very well and has been extremely supportive ever since I told her last night. I told her in a text, and she immediately was fine with it. She said it definitely surprised her though, and she had no clue whatsoever, and she thinks everyone is going to be extremely shocked. I am so happy she was so cool about it though, and it hasn't changed anything between us, except now she makes funny jokes like "I saw him first!" and stuff like that. After I told her she came over and we watched a movie with my family so nothing was said for a couple hours, but then everyone went to bed, and her and I just talked for 2-3 hours about everything. It was so nice to be able to talk about everything I have been feeling, and I could be totally honest. She also said that she always wanted a gay best friend, and is so excited that she finally has one now. I informed her that even though I'm gay, doesn't mean we're going to sit around and paint each other's toe nails, haha.
Welp one person knows, and she wants me to tell my parents tonight, but I'm still kind of nervous to tell them, not because I think they'll react badly, but more just because it is so awkward to bring up. I think they'll be fine with it, I just don't know how to bring it up. I'm like their pride and joy, and I know it is going to be disappointing for them to hear. Alright, I just thought I'd give you guys an update real quick.
Also, thank you to anyone who e-mailed me or commented on my last post. The amount of support you guys have shown me is incredible, and I appreciate it so much. You are all awesome, and I can't thank you enough. You have definitely all helped get me through some tough times.
