    I told my parents that I'm a lesbian 4 days ago... Their reaction has been pretty positive on the whole. I just don't know where I can summon up the courage from to tell my sister. I'm not sure why it is so hard... Also, should I wait for a big explosion from my parents?

    I don't know your parents well enough to know. If they were positive, they're probably OK. Heck, maybe they even kinda expected it.

    Congrats on coming out, try to enjoy the moment a little.

    You should feel good about being so courageous and taking what was undoubtedly a hard step toward living your life openly and honestly. It's hard to say what your parents will do, whether they've finished reacting or how your sister will react. Don't think about that now -- we could play the guessing game for ages.

    As @Bluenote said...you've just accomplished something really huge. Enjoy the moment.
