Telling my parents is one thing, but telling my friends is another. You never know what will happen. I once told a friend I was an Atheist and she said I'm going to Hell. I stopped telling Friends after that. But, now i have two best friends, but what if they stop being my friends? Can I Risk this? Being myself or being a copy of myself? But, what will happen if I tell them and they tell everybody they know and then that goes being spread around then what? People may start to hate me. I just can't go around and Lie to myself and Everybody Else. But, do you tell people you're an Atheist and can deal with what they may say about you. I don't any more people who are Atheist. So I have to deal with this myself.
