I talked to you about my coming out experience with my boss just the other day.
And, as it turns out, it looks like that whole coming out thing spread to more than just my boss and my one coworker.
At first I thought that maybe I should feel upset about it.
I mean, in some ways, I kind of feel like that the people you come out to are the people you come out to for a reason. And they should respect your telling them by not telling other people.
But on the other side, I find it waaaaay easier if people just know.
You don’t have to deal with all the emotions and thought process of figuring out when is the right time and how you’re going to do it.
When people just know, and know for sure, it makes my life easier.
And it wasn’t like it was a big production when I came out to my boss and coworker.
It was very nonchalant and kind of matter of fact.
So, I guess I can’t really be all that upset that more people know now.
And by more people, I mean like the entire fucking office.
In hindsight it’s relieving actually.
Now I don’t need to worry about being me.
Hiding who I am or afraid that something I would do might tip someone off (although that didn’t really happen anyway).
Now, I’m just free to by myself.
And not worry what other people might think of me if/when they find out.
It’s out in the open.
Everyone knows, and it feels like everyone just loves me more.
It’s just kind of amazing how quickly word travels about these kind of things.
I swear, the morning after our drunken adventure, EVERYONE knew…
Could you do me a small favor please? If you liked this post, please share it! And of course, feel free to comment all you like. I read every one of my comments :-)
