Young, Out, and Understanding

Becoming me

I started questioning my speciality when I was 12 years old. There was a girl in my class and everytime I saw her I got this feeling I couldn't describe. A few weeks later she was the only thing I could think about and it took me several months to figure out I was in love. I was always told love meant finding a boy beautiful and sweet, so I never figured I could me in love with a girl too. I was really confused because I didn't know if I was a lesbian, bisexual or something else. Two years later I was pretty sure I am attracted to several genders, so bisexual felt like a label that would fit me. One year ago now, I told one of my best friends I am bisexual and she was so excited! I can't imagine a better reaction. I started telling more friends and my parents. One week before the schools closed in Belgium due to COVID-19 (13th March) I came out at school. I didn't have any negative reaction and all of a sudden I felt like I could be the real me. No hiding anymore. I never thought I would be so relieved by coming out, I am so thankful to live in Belgium, where there aren't many homophobes :)

P.S. I'm sorry for any misspellings/mistakes, I'm still working on my English. Dutch is my native language.
