“One of the biggest blessings of my life…”

So you probably heard how I’m about to be unemployed, which means that I am taking on a whole lot more extra work than I can handle in a sane sort of way.  Luckily, my amazing wife is supportive times a million and is taking care of things like the beasts and reminding me that it will get better.

Point being, posting might be a little light on substance, so I’m sorry about that.  Hopefully low substance can still equal medium to high entertainment.

Speaking of It Gets Better, here’s my favorite video of the series so far.  Have your tissues ready.

The part that gets me is at 5:18.  Seriously, have those tissues ready.

 

(While I never considered suicide because of my sexual identity, I do think that seeing a video like this would have helped me a lot while I was coming out.  To see people who are comfortable, who are grateful, who can talk of the hard times and also not talk about the hard times inspires such confidence in me.  I love 5:45: “It’s been one of the biggest blessings of my life… it’s made me such a stronger person to be gay. There’s nothing I would do to change that now.”)

    I really enjoy this video. I’m not gay but it actually started relating to me after 6 minutes. I’m going thru some things in my life and hearing them say life gets better….helps. Thank you!

    I started watching this video and felt like “nope, I’m in control. I’m not going to cry.” And then right after the 5:18 mark I totally lost it. You called it, haha. I’m not gay but I don’t know how you could possibly hear these stories and not be affected by them. Thank you for posting this.

    Sometimes the best posts are the ones with no real substance at all.

    Not that this post doesn’t have substance. Because it does, in spades. I’m at work so I can’t watch the video but when I get home the tissues will be close at hand. Thanks.
