I'm Coming Out

29 April 2008
I just realized that I did something really stupid. I just joined a book club that has a blog going and I became a contributor. Of course I was not thinking and gave them the email address that I use for this blog. I have a two choices I could make. I could change my profile around a bit and take this blog off my blog list. I do not really want to do that because people would not be able to reach me. The other is just let it go and come out to the whole book club. I think I am going to do the latter. I do not know if other people will look at others blogs, but if they do, so what? I am comfortable with myself or else I would not be using my real name and picture on this blog. So I guess that I am coming out and I better get this party started... :)

Its hard, again you know how I rail against the term "coming out" I think being honest is a better term. But you need to do what you feel most comfortable with. As for telling your roommate. I'd say just go with whatever happens. If the time comes that it is needed then do it. If not then don't worry about it. I think my experiences with Dan that I wrote in my blog is a good example. If you feel it will make your friendship stronger then do it. Its up to you. Its one of those things that once you do it you can't go back. But I think if he sees your true spirit and knows your intentions he will see its a struggle and want to support you.

As for the bookclub thing, that may be a bit more random then I'd want in my life but I realized that my full name is my e-mail address in google and I think that this comes up when you search. So I don't know. I think if anyone has an issue with you, once they get to know you and get to know the real you they won't care. They will see what a great person you are. Thats my opinion at least.

So, in being honest to the world, does this mean that you are being honest with yourself and calling this something other than what you "struggle" with?

I think it takes tremendous honestly and courage to reveal your true self. I was just curious about the "SSA". A term we don't agree on. I applaud your desicion.

I think knowing who we really are helps us define what we really are. Sean you are on the right path. Keep moving along. You know its right cause its the one with the Iron Rod next to it.
