Since June is celebrated as a PRIDE MONTH. Happy Pride 2020.
If this is not your fight you can always stand for others in their fight.
And here through reading this, you are doing, at least, something in favor of them and yourself. Let’s educate ourselves together and understand things really, not just beliefs, and unlearn everything which is NOT right. And if you’re a person, who’s trying to fit in this world full of limiting beliefs and rituals, remember that you’re not alone in this fight, we stand with you and respect you and love for who you are. Sending love.
Here are some tips on how a person under LGBT can come out as LGBT to their friends and family:
It might have been a struggle for you to fit in, but remember tell your story only when you’re ready and safe on your path. The process of telling and coming out may take some time and you’ve to take responsibility for that.
IT’S OKAY IF YOU DON’T WANT TO COME OUT
You must be watching people speaking up for them, telling their stories of struggle and it might feel like you should also do the same, but remember only when you’re ready. Sexuality is a private matter so it’s really up to you. It would be easier for you if you tell in your confident time otherwise, it’s okay if you still need time.
IT CAN BE LIBERATING EXPERIENCE
Since it is very difficult for most people to define themselves openly as society keeps trying to push them under their feet. But once you got all the breathe tell everything out, it can be a liberating moment for you. And who knows You’re gonna be a role model for someone who may be considering coming out.
REACTIONS CAN BE DIFFERENT
Some people concerns about they won’t be accepted or will be seen differently. So when someone comes to you one of the best ways to respond to it is to say, “I still feel exactly the same about you.”
Also, it is totally okay to take your time to process the information but try to continue the conversation that the feelings for that person are exactly the same.
PLAN IT OUT
If you’re planning to tell everything about you, you can always start with people you trust the most first. And also to be safe you can always take the help of the people with more knowledge and communities or support network to deal with it so that you never feel alone or unsafe.
And if you’re telling your family and friends allow them to shock. Sometimes they react negatively but that’s not how they feel. So do not think yourself any less if something happens, give them and yourself time and keep everything simple and easy so that it can be helpful to both parties.
THINK OF EVERYTHING THAT CAN HELP YOU.
You can always try things like journaling, writing your thoughts, group talk with friends. This can be helpful even if before talking you give the hints to people that something’s up. You can text, or write them a letter telling a little bit about you and how you really feel. email, face to face, text, social media, it is totally upon you and nobody is allowed to force you, so try slow and understand yourself and people around you and the situation.
If you know something about your friends and family you want or waiting for them to come out confidently, and when they come out do not say anything. Let them say everything and then we can politely just give them the environment to be comfortable. Even the talk on the table should be in favor of the right things.
Tha’s something I learned through watching and listening to people and their stories, Please forgive me if I said anything wrong because I do not want to give wrong information to people and put you in some unsafe environment even on the internet or socially.
Opinions are always welcomed, you can tell your experience and things that worked for you and friends so that other people who really need help can have plenty of options to talk easily. Also, you can share this information with the people who are still learning or people who are absolutely wrong about someone’s sexuality.
I hope this will be helpful for you, share this with your favorite person who really needs to hear this to put the effort and earn the reward of genuinely helping them. Because helping these days is the only best thing we can do and yes together we are stronger.
