I am still the same person I was only now I am not lying about who I am. I am an authentic person because I am not ashamed of who I love. I am not ashamed for the way I feel and if that is not the person THEY want me to be, then I am really sorry. But I am not about to go around living my life according to their standards.
I hope you get to see your kids for Christmas. Mine have to go with their father tomorrow. Merry Christmas!!!
Thank you. I agree w/ keltic - keep on preaching. You are a powerful speaker/writer. Agreed, fear is our enemy, and it must be fought.
With the "disease" thing; know how you feel - been there, done that.
Luckily, my mom & stepdad have been very supportive & understanding, but it took about 2 years for them to accept it.
With my dad, thats another issue...
Personally, I may finally have a boyfriend, and I feel I could be intimate with him. Strange, how things work out. God works in mysterious ways :-)
In regards to children, yeah understand w/ u there too - I would never hurt a child. Most LGBT or heteros wouldn't do such a thing.
Merry Christmas to You & Everyone,
Peace and Keep up the Good Work,
