But once you break through, you’ll be amazed at the calm that washes over you. Once you’ve acknowledged that you’re gay, you can finally move on to accepting the new you.

It means loving yourself for who you are, and tossing out any feelings of anger or guilt that you might be harboring about the fact that you’re a gay woman.

Personally, the acceptance stage took me the longest (well over 6 years after I had been with my first girlfriend).

It is still new to me as I have only fully accepted my sexuality roughly 6 months ago.

Whether you’re 7 years old or 27 years old, you might first flinch at the feelings you’re beginning to have for other women. After all, it was the exact antithesis of what everyone told me I’d start to feel when I got to that age.

Because of this you might start to avoid those feelings, and to hide them from yourself just as much as you do from others.For instance, if you have a really open-minded boss, you might decide to come out at work …but that doesn’t mean you necessarily want to come out to certain conservative clients.Does acceptance mean you have to come out to everyone you meet? After all, straight people don’t walk around telling everyone they’re straight, do they? Some might feel comfortable sharing their lifestyle with friends and family, while others may prefer to keep it to themselves until they feel more comfortable with the lifestyle.Others literally pick and choose who they’ll be straight with about being gay.You can think, “There must be some other reason why things aren’t going anywhere.” You probably have a hard time accepting that a woman’s just not interested.
