Following on from Ineffables’ out of integrity post, the question of who I am is one that I have often pondered. For many years it was a question I did not want to answer because I felt it would make me acknowledge that I was indeed a person of lesser value as I had always been told.

I was taught from a young age that being gay was the worst possible thing that could ever befall me, whenever I was asked “who I am” I inevitably avoided the question because I always thought that question meant I had to answer “I am gay”.

Fortunately I have grown in the last few years and have realized I am many things, and my answer to “who I am” has no relation to my sexual orientation anymore and nor should it …

I am ----- Arron --------
I believe in self honesty and integrity,
I believe I am the best person I can be,
though I continue to work on being a better person every day.
I believe that life is ever changing and as such
nothing is ever set in concrete,
nothing is ever black or white,
and that I am allowed to change.
I am what I am,
and that is good enough for me.

It’s nice to meet you all \:\)

Arron,

Nice to meet you too! I'm Michael.

From this post, it looks like you've made a profound step. Congratulations! I'm glad that you have been able to step out from behind the "I'm gay" identity to discover the person you are and wish to be.

Peace and love Arron!

Michael
