tdogg, your words are comforting. I'm struggling with wanting to please them, but I don't know if it's right for me. My heart jumps for SoulForce right now and I feel something of a calling although I'm not sure how to make this into a career.
As far as nursing, I do love nursing. I did an internship at a hospital in high school and I loved it. I think it's something I would enjoy doing. At the same time, I feel like I want to help other people and make a big difference. When I'm leading or teaching, especially with GLBT issues, it just feels right and natural. It feels like that's where I belong, at least at this moment in time. I think I'd be needed both in nursing and in work like SoulForce, but I wouldn't know where to begin a career with things like SoulForce. Maybe a business degree would be smart.
I'll start writing a letter to Mel White.
Thank you, everyone, for giving me such great advice. It's really helping me to hear other people's view.
No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.
