It’s a shame that it took my marriage ending to force me to search deeper within myself. I had to find out why I could never seem to be, or stay, happy in a relationship. Thanks to my wonderful therapy group and after much prayer, I finally had one single question pop into my head: “What if you’re gay? Not just bisexual, but fully, totally, completely gay?”
In that instant, it seemed like everything clicked into place and made perfect sense to me. No wonder I couldn’t be happy with a man! I was forcing myself to be with men, when what I really wanted was to be with a woman!
And do you know what? Since giving myself permission to be who I am and coming out of the closet, I’ve come to realize that I’m actually looking forward to spending some time alone and getting to know myself on a more intimate level.
