Although coming out can be easier when you're surrounded by supportive friends and a loving family, that doesn't mean that everything is always smooth sailing. Sometimes, it can be really hard the older you get. But even though the journey might be difficult, you should never be afraid of embracing who you really are. There are certain struggles that come with admitting that you are lesbian later in life but there are ways to deal with them.


Not everyone figures out who they are early on. It's all about letting things come naturally and then taking it from there. That's why dating expert Mary Malia's advice on how to make the process easier is completely spot on. Before you let the stress of not knowing what comes next get to you, there are two important things that you need to know.

1. You need to be proud of yourself for being courageous enough to stand up for yourself and your beliefs.

2. It may take some time getting used to everything but it will definitely be worth it in the long run.

Mary Malia stresses that even though there will be people who don't support you or may question how you feel, you have to stand firm in your resolve. After checking out her helpful guide on coming to terms with your sexuality as a lesbian, you'll see why this approach is foolproof. At the end of the day, you shouldn't worry about what anyone else has to say. Just focus on your own journey.
