It's about to happen.

My flight's in six hours, and I'm going to be making my way to the airport now. My family thinks I'm off to meet some friends. I'm bringing my laptop, some favorite books of mine, and my iPod. I hear them in the background, talking about what to cook for dinner tonight.

The last few days have been really hard on me. There were moments when I wanted to cry, but nothing came out. I got hardly any sleep last night. Every smile I saw - on my mother's face, on my father's and grandmother's - had the effect of making me feel like someone was stabbing me in the heart with a dagger. But I have to do it, for me.

Many of you have given me support during the last few weeks to make this happen. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I've dreamed of this moment for about five years. It's taken five long years, of many detours, moments of self-doubt and fuck-ups before I finally came to the moment where I set foot out of the house and forge my own path.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to break down at some point over the next few days. I'm sad. I'm scared. I'm worried. But I'm also excited in anticipation of where this new adventure may lead me.

Peace everyone.

So I'm going somewhere else.

Goodbye and good healing.

you have all that it takes to be you my friend. there is no failure really, just discovery. your fear must be intense but it is just fear of the unknown, that will pass quickly by definition because it will not be unknown anymore.
good luck bud

Husky -

Your best years are ahead of you. You know you need to do this to become more healthy and more the man you are meant to be. Don't look back - except to remember the lessons learned. And remember we are "with " you.

Proud of you!

Lee

Husky,

Your courage is inspiring and I know will help others to take the steps they need to move forward.

((((Husky))))

I am so proud and excited for you all at the same time. I am pulling for you like so many others here.

Hey Husky,

You are taking a huge step. Not just in the act itself of striking off on your own. But, in doing something so specifically for yourself, for the benefit of yourself, and no one else. That is a tremendous thing to do.

I wish you the best in your new life away from the toxicity of your family. You are in my thoughts. Write anytime you need to talk if the road gets dark. We are all here to support you.

I'm rooting for you as you step into your own life, my friend.
