Everyone finds out they’re gay at different times. I found out in 8th grade. That’s okay. My girlfriend found out last year. That’s okay too. I have a friend who didn’t know until college. That’s also okay. Don’t pressure someone into something they aren’t aware of yet. They’ll figure it out, whether it’s at age six or 84, let them do their own soul searching.

You shouldn’t try to stop everything from happening. Sometimes you’re supposed to feel awkward. Sometimes you’re supposed to be vulnerable in front of people. Sometimes it’s necessary because it’s all part of you getting to the next part of yourself.
