My Dearest Readers,

I'd written this comment to a young man, a few years ago. He happens to be Gay and was having a hard time with his identity. I'd found it, the comment, on his website. He'd posted it as a separate post as he'd stated he felt he needed to hear it.

Maybe, you might need to hear it especially if you are young and you may also be coming to grips with who you are and/or questioning just what the hell life is actually all about???

Growing up is never easy and we tend to spend our youth always wishing we were older. Once we reach and become "of age" we find all the duty and responsibility that comes along with being and becoming an adult, well, it sure ain't a bowl of cherries. The next thing ya know, you're wishing you could still be a kid again. Yes, when life was not so complex and possibly less painful.

So, if you're young and happen to be reading this, the best advice I could give you is to not rush to be an adult, it's not all it's cracked up to be, believe me. Always strive to be yourself, treat others as you want to be treated, say what needs to be said as tomorrow is never promised. Yes, live like there's no tomorrow and...

Reality. Some people have it all in this world. Some of us don't have a pot to piss in. It is good to strive to be in the middle cause anything else is just gravy. Don't expect it and it won't be a disappointment.

Aim high but stay low, don't ever be pretentious and things will fall in to place. Don't sweat the small shit and it's all small shit. Very important! But equally important, don't wait for anybody to save your ass. You are alone.

Whomever you choose to cushion your world with is a bonus but don't count on it. Have a higher power. Gay or not, God knows who you are and loves you. Does he make mistakes? I think not and he created you in His image. It is deviant behavior that he doesn't like and you know what I'm talking about, those nasty trollops.

Fail to plan, plan to fail but don't obsess. Don't be lazy. If something needs to be done that's important, you'll feel much better getting it done, then you can breathe. But those f'n dishes can wait when it's time to enjoy what life's really all about:

'Love, Laughter and Family'

Keeping It Real,

Aunt B
