I want to see you be brave by saying what you want to say about yourself!

    Hey guys so I want to do a social experiment.

    I feel that in gay society we have been conditioned in many ways to be self-critical. Often times when I talk to my gay friends and others in general I see them putting themselves down about something before giving out the positives.

    So how about we change that a bit. It would be nice to say something about yourself that is unique, that you think sets you apart from the rest. This can be physical, emotional, spiritual, whatever you want even if it is meant to give a laugh or two.

    This is meant to be a feel good thread so it would be even better if you add on some positives about a person who posts (That is optional but encouraged).

    I'll start:

    I feel that what makes me different and unique is my way of finding the positives in alot of aspects of life and people. Sometimes I am able to pull some positive strings in people they didn't even realize they have. I also have a knack for getting people to laugh even during awkward or intense moments.

    Well.. i have posted this before icon_razz.gif but i feel it's one of my greatest acievements.

    When i was very young i was in a ''Asian Gang'' and got into lots of fights. I beat up a lot of people... and it started out as a protection thing since we were in a rough neighborhood. Then we pretty much beat up any white kid that came into our street. After a friend of mine was shot in front of me i gave that life up. It was violence leading to violence. After suffering with anger problems and getting into fights and brawls throughout middle and some of high school.

    I learned to channel my anger into music, boxing, meditation, and the gym. Now i am always happy! very rarely get angry or frustrated. And haven't been in a fight in years. I always see the brighter way out of things now icon_smile.gif

    Thanks man! grant it I'm always human and have my off days. But overall i always see the light at the end of every dark situation.

    It's also why i never get mad at anything that's said on here. These are people i've never met in person, or that shape me as a person. So why get mad about what is said on a forum? icon_smile.gif

    Agree. Things said here can often be rude or annoying but when I turn off the computer....*POOF*...they're gone, along with the idiots who say them. So, really, who cares?

    You are very welcome! We need more people like you out there. Encouragement can have some great unforeseen positive effects on a person's life. You have the ability to help shape someone's future so keep doing what you are doing icon_biggrin.gif

    That's the spirit! I am in the same boat with you. Over the past couple of years I have really learned to value myself and let go of the people who either didn't recognize it or tried to sabotage my inner peace.

    Before accepting myself, I was the kind of guy who everyone tried to protect, keep safe, and said things to me like: "you shouldnt put much effort", making me feel useless, depending from others, having low self esteem.
    Of course you will need people through life, but the people are not going to be always with you, so you have to keep moving on. I always love independence, still I live in my parents house, but, at least I have word for my own things, even when they discovered Im gay, even their indifference made me stronger, because even your family is not going to be there for you, you have to keep it up, because at the end, you are going to leave them and be by yourself.
