there was an old post on the internet from 2001 that I wrote. Once happy to be married and have children. It was weird reading my words. So much has changed. I am happy now. I was happy then, but things changed between me and my wife.

There are several things going on here not just me being gay. So much happened to ruin things.
Now I am rebuilding my life.

Hi Michael;;
I cannot relate to marriage, never haviing engaged in any relationship. In reading your post i felt you were a strong and positive individual who lived life more for others than yourself. When reality hit you realized you were either not happy or felt you were stuck in a situation untrue to yourself. It sounds as if it was then coupled with other factors that you decided to end your mariage and begin a life true to yourself. What courage it took; I applaud and admire your strength and convictions.

I pray that you find peace, joy and love in your venture forward for it is like you were given a new chance at life. Now, go live it to its fullest man.

Best Wishes,
Ed

Michael,

What matters, my friend, is that you made the decisions you had to make, you took the hard knocks, and you are recovering. From everything you say it seems to me you made the decisions that were right for everyone concerned.

Much love,
Larry

Michael,

You and I both went through some changes in the last couple of years. I'm happy for you that you are so at peace with yourself.

Take good care of yourself,

Steve

Michael,

I smiled when I saw this:

But Michael, my friend, all you are getting is what you deserve. Always remember that. You have so much to share and so much to give.

Much love,
Larry
