In this day in age, we have sitcoms streaming into the family home every week with many a gay character and storyline, it is common to see advertisements featuring families headed by lesbian gay, bisexual or transgender or LBGT parents, and many public figures have boldly come out to the world. Still, the thought of coming out as LGBT to our own circles of people can be quite daunting.

Contemplating coming out to your family can induce all sorts of misplaced fear and doubt. We worry that the same people who claim to love us will shun us. We worry that who we are will bring shame on the family. We worry that friends will turn their backs on us.

Gaining clarity on how to handle your own coming out can be difficult, especially with your judgment clouded by fear and doubt. Therefore, take a deep breath, exhale, and imagine your perfect coming out story minus all of your worries and fears. Then, use the following as tools to help you as you prepare to escort your family down the path of truth about who you are.

Meditation

In the days leading up to you telling your family, meditate upon it, for meditation is powerful! London escorts have the perfect meditation methods; For at least fifteen minutes a day, sit quietly and, without any distractions, simply be. Stay deeply focused on your meditation by concentrating on your breath flow and repeating power mantras such as, “My gifts to the world are within,” “My safety and security are within,” and, “My peace, love, and power are within.” Open your heart, mind, and spirit to what the Universe wants to tell you, and this will guide you to a peaceful, loving, and harmonious coming out.

Pick Your Top Choice

Start by telling someone you trust a great deal and whom you know will be supportive. This can be mom, dad, a sibling, or a close cousin. If you have a good grasp on someone’s attitudes toward sexuality, then you can gauge what their reaction will most likely be. Start with these people to allow yourself a couple purely positive reactions to your coming out. You will also gain practice on how to say it to the rest of the family. If you don’t have someone you can trust then speak to one of our London escorts for support.

Have a Friend Escort You

Perhaps you have a very close friend to whom you’ve already come out. If you decide you want to come out to a group of family members all at once, then have your close friend escort you to the family gathering for moral support. Your trusted London escort does not have to say anything to the family, if they so wish. If your friendly London escort does decide to speak up on your behalf, he or she could attest to the fact your sexuality has changed nothing about your friendship and affirm that if a friend can accept you for who you are, then family should have no problem doing the same. Remember, the circumstances in which you decide to tell your family can have a big impact, so be sure it is a place where everyone (including you) feels safe, comfortable, and can speak openly.
