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.

"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power.
