Accepting Who I Am Is The Best I Did For Myself

When I was still hiding my sexuality, I was too lonesome, I worried a lot, felt empty deep inside, most of the time upset and depressed. But since the day I came out of my shell and accepted myself for being me, I felt I was freed from the shadows of the past and my miseries, emotional injuries, pain and tribulations vanished in thin air. I could laugh, I could mingle with anybody, I could be the way I wanted to be. The past years ere my family learned who I really am, I coped my sadness by writing allegorical verses/salient features/articles and sent them to different magazines and newspapers. I ventured a lot into dramatic scriptwriting, stage acting, musical scoring/directing, teaching ESL to various foreign students, copyreading/editing and finishing my master's degree in Broadcast Communication.

Accepting who you are and the personification behind your mask will help in diminishing your loneliness and depression. Of course, my young son serves as my sole inspiration and the power to hold on that's why I can face life's reality with positive outlook. If I can do it, why can't you?
