This is somewhat of a sensitive subject
I know a lot of the gay guys have problems integrating in the society they are living in. Homosexuality is still a taboo in many countries around the world and a partially tolerated sexual perversion in others. Those who are most affected by these problems are children and teenagers, who get to live in a social environment that proves to be hostile and patronizing.
In such a world, how can you still grow happy and live a full and satisfying life? This is what everyone is looking for their entire lives and finding it is not as easy as you might think. Can you live as a happy, fulfilled gay man? Sure, as long as you follow certain crucial steps to help you along the way. Like:
- Coming at peace with yourself
This is step one, because it is where it all starts. It is the first step you need to be making in order for you to be able to move forward. Accept who you are and stop fighting your own nature. It will do you no good, because you will never have the power to change it, only pretend. And pretending is not how you want to live your life. So, set aside this grudge you are holding against yourself and come at peace with your inner gay.
- Share everything with your family
Your family should be your best and closest ally. So try keeping them as close as you can. Start by grating them the trust they deserve and open yourself to them. Let them know who you are and the fact that you need their help to cope with society around you. Your family loves you so it will stand by your side no matter what.
- Be careful about your entourage
If your friends start bullying you after finding out the truth about your sexuality, maybe it is time to make new ones. Wouldn’t you say so? Your friends could help you in regaining your self-esteem, because this is what friends are made for. If yours will fail to sympathize with you, that should be a sign you are in the wrong company.
- Learn not to care so much
I know, this is harder to achieve in practice than it is in theory. But, literally, this is the best thing you can do. Just ignore people who try to push your edge and start caring less for what they think about you. This is your life and you are in full control, every step of the way. If others don’t like it, each to his own, I guess. Not caring is great for your mood and for your confidence. You should try it once in a while.
Gay or not, everyone deserves to be happy
What else is there to be said regarding this subject? You deserve to be happy and you need to be able to achieve it. So, just stick to these 4 steps and you are guaranteed to improve your life significantly.
