His Story: Finding My Voice
Everyone thought I was mute, that I physically couldn’t speak. For 20 years in the closet, I barely spoke a word because I feared that if I opened my mouth, people will find out that I was gay. I kept everything inside, closed myself off to the people around me, and never saw a future where I could actually be happy.
My life has changed so much since then. I’ve come out of the closet and into the exciting new world that awaits! Everyday, I’m thankful for the chance to get to experience life and use everything I’ve learned not only for my own growth and personal development, but to help other people in this journey as well.
What exactly happened between then and now?
I heard my real voice through the words written by my hand.
It was writing that saved me.
