Overthinking is Dangerous
I get really quiet leading up to when I come out to someone. It’s a mix of building up courage and over-thinking. And finding the right words/setting up the right conversation topic. I’m not a control freak in my everyday life… but the anomaly is that I have a desire to have complete control over my coming out process.
I think it’s why it took me so long to come out in the first place. Everything had to be perfect, in the perfect time, under my conditions.
Is anybody else like this???
If you’re still closeted, I urge you to learn from my story and not wait for “the right time”. You may not think you’re a control freak (I certainly do not classify as such) but please do not omit that possibility from this specific topic. You’ll literally save yourself years from being happy.
