I can finally be myself

Jacob was finding it hard to keep his feelings to himself.

"Now I've got the guts to tell people I'm gay."

"All my life I thought I was gay"

I always had feelings for boys but I didn't want to tell anyone. I thought people would think differently about me. One time, I really liked this surfer guy, he had blond hair and blue eyes but my friend was going out with him. I wanted him but I knew it would be the wrong thing to do.

I had always thought about calling Kids Helpline, so one day, I did!

They talked me through how I was feeling and all my worries. Now, I've got the guts to tell people that I'm gay and that I have a boyfriend.
