BAD MOMENTS DON'T LAST FOREVER

Well, I'm gay. For as long as I can remember, that is what I have been.

But it was only last year at the age of twenty that I came out to myself, and family. For years I just ignored it. I told myself it was just a silly phase I was going through. I ignored the problem and my feelings and deep down I guess I knew the truth but refused to acknowledge it. I used to think to myself, "I can't be gay," "gay people walk and talk funny," "gay people are mentally ill." blah, blah, blah! I thought well I'm not like that so I can't be gay. I now know you don't have to fit into any mold except your own!

I'm confident in who I am, but getting there was hard. It eventually got to the point where I was so confused and mixed up inside that I considered suicide, however I came to my senses and went no further. It took me a long time to accept my sexuality. It is a process of learning about yourself and who you really are. I feel now that life is there to learn from and making mistakes and other stuff makes you into a better, healthier person. Please remember, bad moments don't last forever. Give yourself a hug!
