Allison I’ve appreciated reading your posts, as I start out on my own belated journey of discovery. I realised it would be a hard path to take for me, my wife and my children. But I was sure that to try to deny the path was to set myself up for far worse things down the way.
In being true to myself, I’ve discovered my children are far more enlightened and amazing than I could have dreamed. And my wife…well that’s a work in progress I guess. I have some hope.
I guess I then feel obligated to encourage you to be true to yourself. It seems you are discovering a need to do so, and in some way are asking us to urge you on. As my way of saying thanks for your writing, I’m urging you to find your own way to come out.
