Probably the most interesting part, which leaves the reader with something to analyze and make a decision (judgement) for themselves and yet it was left out.
I look forward to hearing more of your story. As I age, I realize two things:
1) We all live different lives
2) In the past I have overly sympathized for people with abnormal conditions; that is, desires that are obstructed due to race, gender, age, religion, sexuality.
This realization begets a necessity; for me this must change. I can be empathetic without having to give up anything.
Whereas before I was joining causes and shaming others, I no longer feel that is my place. It’s nice to hear other people gain a voice, courage, etc. but I have to stop living my life for other people.
