the obligated facebook note...


so those of you that noticed I hope you enjoyed some entertainment... but this is my cliche coming out on facebook on my birthday note...
enjoy...

I'm an adult with not much responsibility, I can buy myself my own "presents" so if you're reading this I ask you for a moment of your time.

I don't know how many of you know, I'm sure a lot of you don't care but whatever the case may be, if you've ever wondered this is conformation to your suspicions… I am gay. I have a very wide spectrum of friends so this might be a little confusing to some of you. Those that don't really care THANKS, enjoy the entertainment… and for those of you that are at a lose of words, take a deep breath and hear me out. These are my observations from dealing with "coming out" over the past few years to myself and to my family,

I feel like I am alive now, I am definitely happy as opposed to miserable. I actually have confidence in myself now. I haven't stopped believing in God, I have a better belief and understanding of him because I have accepted myself for who I am. The biggest thing though is that I really don't care if you have a problem with this or don't agree with it… I have better things to do with my time then worry if I'm going to lose "friends" over the fact that I'm tired of living two lives.

You may wonder why now? I am a huge fan of a site called post secrets www.postsecret.com and this week there was a secret that really hit home and though I love my family dearly I can't do this any more. The secret says

"Being who I am would destroy my family…
so I keep quiet and destroy myself instead."

so call me whatever you want to but I can't do it anymore. I am the same person you knew, nothing has changed. You just know a tiny little detail that in todays world makes people believe I'm completely different.

I'm not going to try to prove anything to you. If you want to see for yourself that I'm not any different thats fine, lets talk. Other then that I hope you can find inside yourself to remember to love everyone. Because as "gay" as that sounds that is what the world needs a little more of.

peace ;)
