Life is unexpected

I was watching one of my favourite shows, Doctor Who, last night and one character stated, and I am paraphrasing here, "When you're old and wiser, no one wants to listen to you." It got me thinking. Life rarely goes the way one expects. When you're younger, you think that school, and all its politics, … Continue reading Life is unexpected

I am reading Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg

I am reading a book Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg. It's about a gay guy who's tired of being that "gay guy" around school, so his solution is to switch schools and to pretend to be straight (Or not to be out though not necessarily back in the closet - I don't get it, but … Continue reading I am reading Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg

Learning to love oneself

I cannot always say that I have loved the person I am. When I was a youngster, I never gave the idea of: “Loving oneself,” much thought. I only wanted to be accepted and fit in. I think most of us kids felt this way. When you’re a kid all you want is to be … Continue reading Learning to love oneself

I first came out to myself where I really admitted to myself that I preferred guys over girls. I hated myself. I tried to pray it away - God, how I tried. I cried … Continue reading My complete coming out story

Depression and life

I just listened to a TEDx talk on suicide and life. Once upon a time, I could not do this. I am told quite often that I am a strong person. They say this because I have dealt with having a disability, so well. And if I am honest, in some ways they are correct. … Continue reading Depression and life

I no longer do religion

I grew up strict Roman Catholic. I was pretty "goody, goody" as a kid growing up. The first time I swore was when I was in Grade 7, and I did so on a dare. I remember it clearly. There were only a handful of boys in the classroom with me and they kept promoting … Continue reading I no longer do religion
