Fear of coming out.

This is linked to the fear of failure one above and the fear of being different one below – because of our perceptions of how people will react to our news and worrying about being rejected.

Thought might be:

‘People will stop welcoming me into their groups. I will lose my friends. I will be bullied. People will laugh at me. My parents will disown me. I will have to hide my relationships’.

Being gay, transgender, straight or fluid are ALL ok. It’s a normal part of life and if anyone tries to tell you different, that’s their problem to deal with – not yours. There is no shame attached to being with someone you care about.
