Strength (Facing Your Brick Wall)

Updated on August 5, 2011

How To Climb Your Brick Wall


Your strength is important throughout this journey of discovering yourself and accepting

who you are, getting over denial and moving on because you need to be strong, when I was younger my mum always told me that in life we will face many a brick wall, we can’t go through them, round them or underneath them, we can only climb up them and down the other side back on to our path of life and this is where you need to be strong and face that wall.

Right now that wall your trying to fight is yourself, your trying to come to terms with your homosexuality and the only way to beat it is by accepting that your gay, suddenly you will climb it and release the denial and turmoil that your making yourself feel and be able to move on and become a member of society like everyone else who has climbed that wall and your strength is what will keep you going. Your still the same person you were before you found out you were gay, your still the child your mother carried for nine months and gave birth too and you can draw strength from those and you will find that your journey will begin but only you can make that happen but no one else can do it for you. We need strength when we deal with situations both good and bad as our strength is the only thing that will carry us through like grief when we lose a friend or loved one or when we injure ourselves and we need all the strength we can get to be well again. Your strength is the most important thing at this stage of life without it you will not be able to let go and that will stop you from moving on, remember when you were studying and your determination to do well in those tests and exams that the teacher handed you and how you made your self study and revise for them well that was all down to your own inner strength that is what you need to do here, be determined to climb that wall and accept who and what you are, and not what you could have been.

      You wrote words that were placed on your heart, your words were given to you before all that transpired. God was looking out for you remember " God Whispers when the World is loud." We always have to be strong! :) Your words are powerful and you have a gift continue to use it. :)

      Good work, Calpol - if even one person reads this and is helped, then you have done your job. I am enjoying reading through your Hubs - I have friends who went through the coming out process and it was exceptionally difficult and painful.

      It seems to be a little easier now, but there is still much work to be done - keep fighting the good fight and passing on your wisdom :)

      PS - I spent many good evenings in Carlisle, many years ago. My friend studied there - we went to that nightclub called 'The Twisted Wheel,' or something like that (I was usually v. drunk). Then Botchergate for some chips! :D
