That's very honest & brave of you to say, even nowadays because far too many people still have these backward views on sexuality, I would say. Take Billy, for example, who worked in a mainly large male factory floor environment. If I was to tell certain colleagues that I went to a gay bar last night, they would more than likey say something like, "You f*cking poof, Billy!" rather than ask me why I went or if I enjoyed it, lol.
Sorry for messing up the thread guys with it's sequencing but Bluevelete needed to be heard, like we all do. :-)
To me it's just been who I've been for so long, I hardly see it as brave. There are much harder aspects of life for others out there, which are usually my first thoughts.
I appreciate you, and that sentiment..
I'm aok Billy
Your thoughtfulness is kind but it's maybe those work colleagues of yours that I wish could have their hearts and minds addressed a bit, it's perhaps those folks that need a bit more awareness / empathy...even baby steps in a better direction... imo.
I used to try with reasoning to those who might be comparable to who you've described (not that they're bad or awful.. there's many like that here in FL... many) but my older age has me mostly just living as I deem fit and to me that's the lesson. Be as happy as you can be while being as authentic. I don't need to reason... just live my life in earnest. it's a life long lesson that's always in progress and evolving.
enough droning.... lol...
chocolate cake is my Achilles heel... Nom Nom 😋 I try to stay away because it's truly my favorite. I had a piece a few months ago from Uber eats delivery... omfg... I dream about it some nights and I try and forget that restaurant has that chocolatey perfection... Uggh
Have you ever had a secret admirer?
