A GIVE ‘EM HOPE STORY….YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND I THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS WITH US:
My day at Work
Today like any other day, I went to work with my regular work mates who I also consider my really close friends. We always discuss my homosexuality and people who are homophobic, they always give me support knowing that I’m a lesbian. I also live in a country that does not condone homosexuality. So I live a secret lifestyle and only close friends and family members knows that I’m a lesbian. But today while we were discussing me and my life, my friend turns to me and says, Lenore are you sure that you want to live like this? I got really defensive and told him yes, and it’s my choice to live my way, and it makes me happy. He told me that living my life may be easy now but in the future i will regret it. I felt it was a necessity to ask him why. so I said why do say this I always thought that I had your support. He answered and said yes I have his support but he thinks that it’s time for me to make a change. I asked what change should I make? He then answered me saying try to be NORMAL. I was in total shock. So I told him when you say normal you really mean that I should try being straight, he replied saying yes. So I told him well you should try being gay, and only then you will understand what I’m going through. some other harsh words were exchanged but by the end of the day he understood and apologized for being rude to me. The reason why I’m sharing this is because I felt the need to. It’s not an inspiring story but it was the first time this happened to me. Although I may live in a society where being a lesbian or gay is not accepted. I think I mentioned this before This group gives me hope, this group has changed my way of thinking. I’m not scared anymore of what people think of me, I also promise myself that I will make an effort to come out and not stay hiding. Because of the members of this group and the admins I am proud to be who I am.
