Hello there, everyone! Today’s a proud moment for me here at Zoeyvaluated! You know that thing people say, “if I can help one person, then everything I’ve done will have been worthwhile”? Well, today we have a reader who approached me about using this blog as a platform to anonymously come out. Say, what?! I couldn’t be more touched and proud of them for coming forward with this! Now, let’s give them some love and support, shall we? 🙂
Without further ado, here it is!
So, I’m not entirely sure how to open this post, so I’m just going to come out and say it. I’m Bi. Hey I said it! Yes, you read that right I am Bi! Anyway, I want to share some things with you about me and how I knew.
When did I know…
High School. That’s when I figured it out for sure, but I guess you could always say I felt it before then. Now, yes, I dated guys and no, I’ve never dated a woman. That doesn’t mean I didn’t want to, I just never acted on it. I even had a huge crush on a girl in high school. But she was straight and I never told her. I mean I guess you could say I didn’t spill the beans because I wasn’t sure what people would think. To everyone I was the straight girl who dated boys. But, now in my adult life I wish I would have thought less of what people would have thought and just followed my heart.
So, what now…
Well, I came out to my husband (yes, I am married to a straight male), and he completely accepts me for who I am. And yes, I am faithful and I am very happy with him. But after I had told him it started to weigh on me to get my story out there, and to let others know not to hide who they are.
Don’t be afraid or worried about what others are going to think about you, because honestly their opinions do not matter. You are you who you are for a reason and if people don’t like it well then that’s their loss.
Who I am…
Well, I am me hehe, and for now I am going to stay anonymous until I find the right time to let you know what my name is. Don’t worry you’ll survive and I like to keep people guessing, it keeps the mystery alive!
So, there you have it, and I am so proud of myself for getting this of my chest! I want to leave you with a couple of my favorite quotes before I sign off.
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Bernard Baruch
“Being true to yourself is better than being a liar just to impress everyone.”
There ya have it folks, a big moment for this anonymous, courageous reader!
