I'm thinking about coming out to a somewhat wider circle of people and would very much appreciate any advice or experience shared. My parents know, my boyfriend and some close friends as well, but some other 'close' friends don't. I feel bad that I call them friends, while I am just lying shamelessly to them. But I am not sure if they would understand - or if I am able to tell them in a way that they understand - they are very intelligent but so rational, and have a very different way of thinking. While I spend a lot of time looking in, they are not as interested in their inner world and they don't know addiction.. Sometimes I feel I am a stowaway among them.
So I wanted to ask you how you handle this thing, what are your experiences, if you did tell, how did it go and how did it change your relationship with those people..?
Thank you in advance!
