Ever since I was a little girl, I always knew deep down I would like a girl one day. I talked to a few girls before. But, I actually was talking to my best friend at the time when I went to church that following Sunday,and the preacher started talking about how liking the same sex was against God. When I heard that, I automatically thought that I was disgusting and that God was judging me for being gay.
As I went through my teenage years, I was with a guy. Deep down I knew it would never work. This past summer, I actually met this amazing girl. We became friends, and before you knew it, that friendship turned into the best thing that ever happened to me.
Telling my mom was the scariest part, considering she is a preacher. I didn’t think she would have taken the news very well. Surprisingly, she took it better then I thought. Now finally, I feel like I can be myself and love who I want to love. Being gay in this generation is scary, you’re always going to wonder what people are going to say or think about you. You just have to remember that being yourself is all you need to be. Don’t let people control you and say that you can’t be who you want to be.
