It wasn't long ago that I wrote my first post on these forums. It was the first time I had ever told anyone that I was gay. It was a big step. With each person I have told, I feel another weight being lifted. I hope that your experience here will be as valuable as mine has.
Being a church worker and being gay is often a tough combination. Being gay shouldn't make any difference, but it does to people. When I come out at work in a few months, I plan on getting some hostility and am braced to lose my job. Fortunately I am financially secure enough that the job loss won't be that problematic. (But I like my job and will miss it!)
What has surprised me a little so far is that I have gotten no negative responses to coming out. I'm sure some are coming, but so far everyone has been understanding and supportive. My mom isn't real happy with the idea, but she loves me unconditionally.
I pray that your journey, whatever it may be, will be as positive as mine has been. The people on these forums can be a great help.
