it worked!

So thanks for all the suggestions from everybody, I sent my homie an email and he was comlpetely cool with it. I sent it to him last night at like midnight and sent him a text saying I sent you an email but just read it when you have time and you're alone. (didnt want him pulling it up on his phone and freak out with friends around lol) So he texted me saying he would read in private and dont worry about it. About 30 minutes later, he sent me this:

Friend: I just read the email. I just want to let you know that I will always love you like a brother no matter what. This is not going to change anything between us you will still always be my homie. And if you need to talk to anyone you know I am always here bro.

We went on back and forth and I said you can ask me anything whenever, I dont mind. So real quick he asked how long I've known and if I'm going to tell our other close friends. I said I wanted to tell them before I went back to school but its just hard to bring up and he understood. He told me if I need any help telling them, he would help me out. So Im soooooo glad I got that over with. I was scared as shit when I heard my phone go off after I sent the email. It turned out perfectly and couldnt of asked for a better response from him.


  1. It sounds like your surrounded by some great and caring family and friends. count yourself lucky and never take it for granted. Sometime we make things 10X worse in our heads than what really will happen. I'm really happy for you

  2. Congrats man. You really do have a great group of friends and reading stories like this where they react well gives me hope for me and my friends.

  3. You are on a roll! Sounds like your friend is a great person. It was encouraging to read how he will always love you no matter what differences you guys may have.
    I feel honored to have seen you grow up so much as a person in such a small amount of time. You are such a compassionate & strong person and getting positive feedback from friends will make it that much easier to trust other friends with your darkest secret.
    Kudos to you!

  4. I am glad things are working out. It means you have quality friends. I know all of this is taking quite a weight off your shoulders. Continued good luck!!

  5. Socrkid: The song that plays first is "Trapped In My Mind" and it seems fitting for those of us fearful of coming out, we create a prison in our minds -- for some the fear is real and for others it's imaginary. So far your fears have not been realized, your friends and family support and love you, just as you hoped. And what a wonderful feeling it is. Good luck on your journey coming out.

  6. Well done. Coming out can be a brave thing to do.

    Hope it all works out for you.
