I actually don't know how i feel right now. I feel happy, but i also feel kinda sad.

Honestly, i don't know how i managed to tell it. It wasn't planned and i still wanted to wait for a while.
I feel so weird
Yay, I'm so proud of you! Your life just started right there!

Re: Coming out...

Chun-Li ftw She was amazing! I loved her in the movie as well. I'd rewind the scene where she beat up M. Bison and rewatch it over and over again.

It's time for you to make your coming-out.

Re: Coming out...

A year has passed since I opened this thread, but it feels like a past life. I can honestly say how much my life has changed in the last few years, but especially in the last year. So many things have changed (for the better), and a very few for the worse

I've fully accepted who I am as a person and I've embraced it. A lot of it had to do with TF. I've heard so many of your stories here that inspired me and gave me hope in the moments I thought things would never get better. So thank you TF, I'm ever so grateful

I looked my difference as failure, but that same 'failure' became the foundation on which I rebuilt my life. Honestly, in the last year, I can't ever remember having a happier year than 2012. I've improved as a person, but most importantly I could live and breathe without feeling/caring for the heavy weight of judgement. I was finally able to let go and have fun and not care what other people think. I'm not the insecure and shy person I was when I started high school 2 years ago. I'm a much more positive person (apart from predicting Maria's matches ).

My social and *love* life have improved a lot as well and so has my relationship with my parents. I managed to keep straight A-s in school, so all in all I can say 2012 was a good year, but hopefully 2013 will be been better

Love you everyone
