I have a fear of coming out because of the fear that I will lose family and friends. Some people think this is cowardice. Some people think I am hiding or pretending.
“If you were really bi, then you wouldn’t care about losing them”.
But losing a family is hard. Losing friends is hard. Losing people who were once in your corner, always, is terrifying.
What do you do when they are no longer supporting you?
Sure we can find a new support system, but that takes time. It takes time to build trust. How would I do it?
I wouldn’t be alone, but I would be lonely in this world trying to navigate new relationships in this life.
Do I walk into life as me and leave people behind? Or do I lose friends and family? Is that selfish? Should I not care?
