Become a Confident Gay/Lesbian Person

Even when you were still a child, you may have known that you felt different to your peers – those who were growing up around you. It is quite common for young Gay and Lesbian people to know they feel “different” from a young age.

It can be difficult for young people (as well as those who discover their same-sex attractions later in life) that “Coming Out” can be a difficult process, for a whole range of reasons, (some of them listed below).

As Dennis  Altman  an Australian author and activist wrote many years ago (in 1971):

“Our gayness is not something like skin colour, or sex, or infirmity, apparent to both us and others.  We have to discover our homosexuality, and having discovered it, we have a wide range of options, hardly available to others who are stigmatized, as to how we should reveal our stigma.”

(Homosexual Oppression and Liberation. New York, NY: Avon Books).

It is widely recognized that for a Gay or Lesbian person, “coming out” is a positive step and an ongoing process. You should know that this will ultimately make you truly happy.

But on the other side of the coin, you may also know that the world is full of people who aren’t afraid to show their disapproval of different sexual  orientations, and you may be  scared that soon enough, you’d be the center of their insults and negative comments. Because of these, you may have lived your life in a shell, and lost the confidence to do anything openly as a gay or lesbian person.

Where are these issues coming from?

Aside from the fear of a lack of acceptance from the general public, not having the confidence as gay or lesbian person can also stem from a lot of things, and some of these are:

  1. You grew up in a setting where there are strict rules, or your family has this certain tradition, about what is to be a male or female and that “you have to carry the family name” because if you don’t, you’ll become a disgrace.
  2. You grew up in an era or a place where it was illegal for gay men to show their appreciation to other men and they were punished whenever they do so. Their attraction to the same sex may be subjected to violence, and they may become the center of discrimination. The same may well have gone for lesbians;
  3. You don’t know any lesbian or gay people when you were growing up, and this resulted in the belief that homosexuals should be stereotyped and should only act based on what the media depicts.
  4. You had a religious background wherein you can only be tagged as someone “good” if you have a relationship with the opposite sex.
  5. Your environment is filled up with gays and lesbians, and you’ve seen how they were bullied and how their lives were made difficult because of their sexual orientation.

Being scared of not being accepted by the people around you is normal when you decide to come out from your shell. But you shouldn’t take everything on yourself. There are a lot of ways on how you can overcome this phase in your life and one of the best ways to do it is by seeking professional help.
