Well, 2 days ago my best freind and I were IMing each other and then because I didn't respond for a while she knew something was wrong with me. And there was, I was fighting in my head whether I should come out of the closet and tell her that her best freind is bi. Well, I didn't tell her but I did say that I had a seceret that I would tell her when I was ready. Well ever since that the fighting in my head has turned to WWIII level and I'm completely un-sure of what to do. I mean, like, the last seceret I told her she told a month afterwards because she said that the person was 'Really deppressed and needed something to cheer them up'. I'm completely un-sure and I would greatly appreciate any advice.

It's all about pros and cons here. I suggest that you consider the possible outcomes and make two lists, one list containing good possible outcomes, the other bad possible outcomes.

You may also want to weight each outcome based on emotional impact to you, likeness of occurring, etc.

Not only will this give you a good idea of what may happen, it will also force you to do a little thinking on the subject - you may find your answer while creating your lists instead of while evaluating them.

Good luck dear.

I personally want to thank you ookuotoe. I took your advice and yesterday night told my freind, and as the list showed she understood and, from what she showed to me today and yesterday, pretty fine with the fact I was bi. I want to thank you for helping me come out to my best freind, whom I probably would've never told otherwise.
