    As Gays, homo-sexuals, same-sex lovers, same-gender lovers, or some other new aged politically correct word you could possibly come up with; the chapter of Acceptance is one of the most important.

    This can come from your friends, your family, your place of worship, or from within yourself.

    Once someone has completely realized, or has a strong idea, that they're gay or bisexual they tend to have a small want to share that. They might want to tell their parents, or friends, so on and so forth. That chapter is called, ever so popularly, 'Coming Out'.

    That chapter is one of the hardest chapters in any homosexuals life, and is also one of the most life-changing.

    The chapter right after that is the topic of this forum.


    It can be difficult to find acceptance from those you wish to find acceptance from.

    Some people may never accept your life-style but they will accept you (which doesn't make any god-damn sense, because if they accept you. . . then they should accept every part of you).

    For others they won't accept you period, they may turn their backs on you and may possibly dis-connect themselves from you forever.

    For a great majority of enlightened people and cultured people, they will accept you for who you are. Not only that, but people who truly love you will accept you no matter what.

    No matter what the outcome, px;">it's important that you are happy with you![/size]

    Before you can even think of expecting others acceptance of yourself, you must accept it and be proud of yourself. . . you're only one person and you only have one body. If this is who you are, then by God this is who you are.

    Being gay was perhaps the easiest acceptance of my life.That's boring.

    Accepting that I'm not that powerful was the hardest, most painful, and the most beautiful.

    Acceptance comes from within first.
    When you realize that you are gay, does anything really change about you? Your personality should not, after all you are the same person. Nothing changed except that have accepted what you are.

    It is like when a kid first realizes that he is either shorter or taller then everyone else and that is just the way it is going to be, nothing can change that. Sure you can have the bones in your legs broke (gay conversion therapy) or you can place lifts in your shoes (be in the closet) but that's not really going to change who you are. It creates a mental illness to not accept who you are and realize there really is no way to change it. No amount of slouching to make you shorter is going to change who and what you are.

    Acceptance frees you from the restrictions you place on yourself because you cannot accept yourself for how you were born. So look in the mirror and realize, nothing can change that which 'God/the Universe/Mother Nature/the Evolution Process' made. And that's okay, because you are exactly what 'God/the Universe/Mother Nature/the Evolution Process' planned.
