The other day i realised 1 way or anothr that i spend a lot of my life a bit afraid and not just because im gay. does anyone else fel or felt this way? how did you handle it? i think there must be so much. afraid of being outted. slagged off. even attacked. losing friendships, having family pull away, not being wanted by people outside of the community. upseting religious ideas, being a bit alone sometimes and never fittin in.

Hmm, I'm unsure how to address a lot of the issues specifically myself. Some of it as a gay man I can completely relate to others less so.

When I was in primary school I was very badly bullied by everyone. To the point of some dark thoughts going around a 10 year old's mind. When moved away I was harassed by one small group of friends for my sexuality. Over three years I realised this was preventing me from living life. So for me "handling it" was a matter of shirking off others expectations of myself mentally and looking as to what my own should be. It by far not any easy thing to do and ultimately means that most of the journey is battling yourself...

This worked for me personally and reflected what had become my own inner daemons in a manner of speaking so I don't advocate people coming out unless they KNOW it is their way to walk.
