Being Gay In Todays Society Acceptance
The hardest part about being gay is acceptance, this is because you yourself must first accept that you are gay, bi, lesbian or whatever you are, otherwise you will only lead to fighting yourself inside and make yourself ill and others around you.
It is you who has to be the one to stand up and accept your self inside, this is not about other people and their opinions as they don’t matter, it is you and only you who can do this step and when you do accept this you will be able to draw confidence and strength from your decision.
Remember this is your life and your way and how you are going to be for the rest of your days it is a big step and it is hard one to undertake but once you do it you will be so much better and so at ease with yourself that other peoples opinions will not bother you.
There are a lot of people out there that have had to live lies because they can’t accept that they are gay, it is not always their fault however because at one time it was illegal to be gay and carried a sentence in prison, theirs was a hard generation and not as widely accepted as we are in todays society.
I myself found it terribly hard to accept my gender as I blamed other people and hurt so many near to me in doing it, however once I did accept it I found a whole new world open up to me.
Granted people are all different and it will take some time so don’t worry if it takes you a while to accept this Rome was not built in a day, but you will find inner peace when you accept who and what you are.
Your friends maybe going through exactly the same so if you can accept it they will draw confidence from you and accept it too remember you lead the way for others to follow.
