Sounds like such an exciting time for you!  As you start to come out to more people you may find that some are less accepting than others - and that is OK.  They all need to accept at their own pace - and it doesn't mean they don't love you.  So, keep moving forward on your positive path and let them travel along their's.  They will come around when they are ready.

I did have a huge feeling of relief after I came out.  My sister and I are both gay (and the only two kids) so we decided to come out to our parents together.  I didn't sleep the night before.  After telling them, we left the house to give them space to experience their feelings (at the advice of my therapist) and we crashed out for hours in the park.  We were both so relieved that it was over and that it went as well as could be expected.

You have great experiences ahead - enjoy!
