coming out 

So I am married to a man and just had the realization last October that I am bi. Part of me feels that if I were to come out to my family they would just ask why it was even important to share if I am already married. Like I made my pick and that’s all there is to it. But the other part of me feels like this has been hiding deep inside me for so long and I need to share it. Any suggestions or stories of coming out would be encouraging. This is the only space I currently am “out.”

@Birdie my advice is to really examine what you want out of being "out." we have this culture now, generated by people who can afford to be loud, that everyone should be out at all times, and anything else is shameful secrecy. but really, privacy and secrecy are two very different things. there are ways to end secrecy (ie, tell folks in some safer contexts) while still maintaining privacy (not being an open book for the sake of being an open book)

@elzbieta I know that I didn’t respond to this right away but everything you said really resounded with me. Thank you for those words. I needed them. I think that the one place I want to share and be honest is with my parents and sisters. But I don’t know how they would take it out how to approach those conversations.
