Sorry for my absence over the last 6 months. Life’s been very busy and a lot has happened. The main thing that’s changed is that I finally came out to my parnets in November last year. They were far more supportive than I expected them to be and haven’t stopped talking to me or forced me into gay conversion therapy. These were my two biggest fears and not having them realised and still having a relationship with my parents has been great. Sadly it’s not been all good, they are firmly of the opinion that for me to have any form of relationship with a woman is sinful and therefore not acceptable. My dads given me books to read and websites to look at which support his opinion, none of which I’ve agreed with.
So far I’ve avoided the nasty conversation which will go along the lines of “I don’t want to be on my own for the next 60 odd years so if I meet a woman I’m willing to have a relationship and hopefully one day get married to, I’m going to!”. I’m intending to leave this conversation until I actually meet someone. Why cause difficulties before I have to.
In other news, I’ve started really loving my job and don’t want to quit it any more. I’ve even come out to everyone at work & I’ve not had one negative comment or lost any friendships. If only people at church would be so welcoming and accepting. Instead, I’m avoiding friends so that I don’t have to have that conversation with anyone and risk being told just how terrible a person I am.
