It’s Okay if You’re Not Ready Yet

It’s totally fine if you’re not ready yet.

It’s okay if you feel like it’s not your time to come out of your shell.

It’s okay if you feel like you’re the only one who understands you.

 It’s totally fine. As long as you’re happy and you’re not knocking other people out. Just live your life to the fullest, little warrior.

 

Happy Pride Month to everyone!

Especially to our LGBTQ+ friends and family who are out there.

 

The month of June is the month for everyone, especially our LGBTQ+ friends, and I guess it is the most hated month for those homophobic people out there who think that seeing someone who isn’t straight could kill them. Like, what the freaking hell? Bruh... These kinds of people are the worst people in the world. It’s just ironic how these people are mostly the most religious ones but are also the most homophobic ones.

 

Pride Month is like a month where our dearest friends feel free from everything, where they can express themselves freely without thinking of someone’s judgment and other people’s negative opinions about them. It is their month to express who and what they really are without worrying about everything. Because there are a lot of people out there who are not able to express who they really are because they are afraid of what other people may say to them, they tend to hide who they truly are because society is cruel.

 

It’s okay if you’re not ready yet; take your time and only come out whenever you feel like you’re ready. You don’t have to pressure yourself too much and you don’t have to hide forever, as if you’re a threat to society. Come out whenever you’re ready and spread your wings and fly like a free little butterfly.

 

But we all know that it is not as easy as it may sound. There are a lot of people who are hesitant to come out and show who they truly are. I have a lot of gay and bisexual friends who have just recently come out, and they all have the same reasons. They are all afraid of what their family may say to them. Apart from that, they are also afraid that they might get hurt by their fathers, uncles, and brothers. It sounds too sad that these people were not able to show what their true colors are because they were afraid of their own families, who were supposed to be the people who would uplift and support them.

 

I have this friend from my college days, and he is bisexual. Mind you guys, he is truly an attractive guy. Like, why is it that most bisexual men are all attractive? Why is that? LOL. So, he had a boyfriend once and a girlfriend before during his senior high years, and his parents had no idea that their son was not a straight guy. He acts so manlily at everything to the point that you can’t even think of him as a boy, and he’s even our classroom president during that time. In fact, I also liked teasing him when I found out that he liked boys too.

 

Whenever we walk, I always tease him, such by holding his hands, and every time I do that, he’ll just laugh at me. But during those times of teasing him, I literally had no idea that he already had a boyfriend. I just found out when I saw them walking home together. And they look so cute walking together, like what a typical "tropa" is like "buddy". When all of us found out about them, they became comfortable showing their love for each other, and they no longer get shy whenever they are together. Everything looks so fine. But the only sad thing is that his parents still have no idea that their son has a boyfriend. What’s worse is that his father doesn’t like gays. He can only feel freedom when he’s not at home.

 

I hope that he will finally have the courage to show his true colors to his family. Because parents are meant to support their children and not the other way around. I hope that his father will realize that there is nothing wrong with being gay. :>

It is not easy for everyone to express their feelings and emotions, but the world is opening its mind and the situation is already improving. Let us pray for all those people who gave everything, even their lives in search of their rights. "June 28th"

Thank you for being an ally, friend! 🌈😘 Let me just clarify that a person's sexual identity shouldn't be defined by his/her actions. There are people that may act feminine but are really straight and there are also some that acts the opposite. 💗
