So here I am almost 30 years old and I still haven’t had the courage to tell my family and friends the fact that I am gay. Sometimes I still am admitting it to myself. Honestly I have known for a very long time but I’ve never acted on it. Anytime someone would bring up relationships I would just play it off with some excuse as to why I wasn’t interested. I’m sure some people know the truth but I want to be able to let them all know someday. I just don’t want to lose all the people in my life that I love so much. The thing is I don’t want my love for them to keep outweighing my desire to be free. So much of my life has been about pleasing others and being the person that they and I thought I should be, but I am just so tired. I want to be me. I need to be me. I just want to breathe and feel what it’s like to really love someone like all my friends do. I would welcome any guidance from anyone who has been through this same situation. I’m at a point in my life where I can’t keep hiding this part of my life. I am just afraid of losing everything I have built for myself. I don’t want to make an awkward situation for myself, my co workers, my friends and most importantly my family. To be completely honest, making this blog post has taken a lot of courage that I didn’t think I had until now for some reason. So here I sit at 3 am asking for help and guidance from anyone out there reading this. Thank you in advance to anyone who is willing to help me.

Back in the 1500's, people would ask the great sculptor Michelangelo how he manages to turn a block of marble into a masterpiece. His reply was that he was not making a masterpiece out of the marble; he was chipping away at the marble to get to the masterpiece that was already there. In my practice I am helping my clients get to the masterpiece that they are, beneath the bramble of self-doubt, anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, anguish or illness.
