I'm a bisexual woman, and I'm scared of ever coming out to anyone. I stupidly told my best friend and my brother when I was younger, but if I could go back and stop anyone from knowing, I would. Even though they're both so supportive and accepting. Over the years I've tried to tell myself I'm straight, but I've known deep down since I was about 10 years old that I'm bi.It might be because I come from a biphobic family (minus my brother) and it's put me off ever coming out to them. I've known since a young age I choose my own family and not to trust my biological relatives, but I guess it's just put me off the idea of coming out to anyone. I find it so hard because there are so many things I want to speak up about, like when my sexuality gets invalidated or erased, but I'm hardly out to anyone and I feel like I can't talk to anyone. I'm so scared people will view me differently if I come out.Even my closest friends who I know are definite LGBTQ+ allies and are so caring and I know I can trust, I'm scared to come out to them. I feel like I'll never be able to live as my true self. I'm constantly invalidating myself just because I lean more towards men. But I'm definitely attracted to women. Inside I feel so comfortable with the label bisexual, I know that's who I am.I want to speak up about how annoyed I am every pride month when companies pretend to care about me for monetary gain. I want to support other bi people by sharing my story. Inside, I know I'm a bisexual woman and I'm proud of it. But we still live in a predominantly LGBTQphobic world and it hurts.
