First of all, anon, you are not going crazy. While the median age for people realizing their sexuality tends to be in the teens, plenty of people are still trying to figure themselves out in their twenties and older. I was 23 when I first started IDing as bisexual, so you’re in good company. You are not alone.
I’m going to give you the advice that my best friend gave me when I came out to her: your sexual identity is your business and your business alone. You can identify however makes you comfortable and you can use whatever label feels comfortable and right to you for however long it feels right. You can share that with your friends or family or you can keep it to yourself. The only right thing to do is doing what makes you feel at peace. You are in charge of your identity, so do what makes you feel comfortable.
For me, one of the hardest parts of starting to ID as bi was feeling that I was all the only Mormon bisexual in existence. Right now the Mormon community is starting some good conversations about what it means to be both gay and LDS, but you hardly ever hear about bisexual Mormons. We sort of fall between the cracks. That’s part of why I started this tumblr—so people like me and you could know that we’re not alone. Finding a community was really important to me, so I’m going to share with you some links. First, there’s this lovely post over at Mormon Feminist Housewives about being bisexual and Mormon. I’ve also found a lot of wonderful people over at Mormons Building Bridges. They’ve been amazing at being a place that promotes both faith and inclusion of LGBT people. There are also a ton of amazing bisexual blogs here on tumblr (bisexual-community and bialogue-group are both really awesome and have great posts with lots of resources for bisexual people).
I hope this helps a little :) I know it can be really, really scary and unsettling to sort through all of this and try to figure yourself out—especially when it feels like everyone else figured this out when they were fourteen—but I want you to know that you’re not alone. No matter how you identify or how you act, you are still a daughter of God and your Heavenly Parents will always love you. You don’t need to have all the answers right now. It’s okay to be uncertain. Take all the time you need to sort this out for yourself, and remember that I’m always here if you need someone to talk to <3
ahahahaha preparing my application to grad schools and hunting for ways to write a good personal letter instead of using my wifi to talk to friends I don’t normally talk to, or tumblr, or watch youtube, or do ANYTHING fun, is EXACTLY what I want to do with my day off and wifi that works sans problem for the first time since getting here
(though really and honestly, I’ve had a great day off. :) It’s just a lame way to end it)
hello hello hello i am here
I lived in a tent for 2 weeks on the sea shore and it was beautiful but i missed the internet.
(and to anyone (specifically derekbraeden) who tried to talk to me while I was living in a tent, I’M SORRY I WAS SO COLD AND ALOOF I HOPE TO HAVE WIFI AND BE A BETTER PERON)
now I’m going to live in a mobile home (yay!) for 2 weeks in the south of france and anticipate it to be beautiful but i am unaware if i will have wifi so i anticipate to miss the internet
goodbye goodbye goodbye I am gone
Have a great vacation, I’ll see you when I get back from Quiberon!
erase the idea that all pansexuals are sleazy, flirty, and incredibly sexual and that all asexuals are unattractive, unloved, and introverted.
okay so mum found this recipe for homemade thin mints
it’s just semi sweet chocolate chips melted and a bit of peppermint extract added
then you dip ritz crackers in them and refridgerate
and i freaked out at first because EW WHAT i was so confused
but i am not kidding, they are literally exactly without any fucking difference, taste like thin mints
you can have like 100 thin mints for like $5
go forth and profit
