How did you 'come out'?

Social media helped me come out Coming out, and out, and out Coming out of the 'crippling' closet Coming out: I'm stuck in the closet When Mike became Jennifer Coming out: My story set me free Coming out: Soap suds and sexuality Coming out an on-going process The day I yelled 'I'm gay' My 'coming out' gay holiday

I'm married, have given birth to two incredible children, and have a husband that I adore.

I am also bisexual.

In fact I think I am more gay than straight, which has always been so confusing.

My husband knows that I am bi. My friends have sneaking suspicions and my mother just recently confessed she was convinced that I was a lesbian when I was growing up.

But in reality I am still in the closet. The only person who 100 per cent knows I am not completely straight is my husband. I am so ashamed of that.

I'm ashamed because it's like I don't have the guts to admit who I truly am, and getting married was like a get out of jail free card.

I would hope that if my marriage did ever fall apart (but I don't see that happening as I am absolutely in love), I would open that closet door, but right now, I'm keeping it closed because I have no need to open it, and I feel like that makes me a coward.

I am always so blown away by the courage of those who live outside the closet. I just wonder if one day I'll have that courage.
