The Conversation Never Spoken
I didn't wimp out, I didn't change the subject, and I most definitely didn't lie.
So as I posted earlier I was going to use this vacation back home to tell my BFF since birth that I was gay. Well I didn't, but let me explain why.
As I posted earlier my friend has been going through a lot of things in her life, and this week things just piled on top of her. Things became harder for her than they have ever been. I knew that by telling her about me, I would only had to her stress and complicated life, and so out of respect I had pre-determined not to tell her.
On top of that decision, I only had a 30 second conversation with her at her work before I had to run back to the car to head off to our families next planned activity, but it was good to see her and give her a hug across the counter.
I am already planning another trip up, (by myself) to tell her before I'm off to college. I talked to her on the phone and she said there is a lot more to her story than she has told me, so I'm sure we can have a crying, heart gushing fest together.
