This is the part of coming out that no one sees or wants to talk about. It is not easy for everyone to come out. It can take months or even years for someone to come out.

From my experience, the hardest part is coming out to yourself. The mental preparation it took to finally be honest with myself and others around me was very mentally straining, but worth it at the end. Thoughts race through your head. Reactions like this are what give us the courage to keep coming out and show the world who we really are.
These are the people you should keep around. They will build you up and support you and your decisions. How do you know? Am I really that much of a stereotype? I guess I was nervous for no reason? This one is tough.
Some people just need some time to process. You do not need to justify anything, just give them some time, who knows? They may come around to the idea of it sooner or later. This one is my personal favorite because obviously they know you better than you know you. Then she meets a girl and starts going out with her.
