Oh my gosh! This is cool! A new tag!!! Thank you Ana for the honor of nominating/tagging me for this wonderful tag you have co-created! I’m excited!
Age 15…35 years ago. Oh my gosh that means I was a freshman in high school…wow! This is going be a tough one.
it wasn’t your fault. You just happened to be in wrong place at the wrong time. Yeah, it is going to leave scars and confusion as to your sexuality, but it was NOT your fault. Be thankful it was you and not a boy younger than you. You’ve been through it as a child and you remember the pain and hurt.
And all those changes you are dealing with will only make you into the man God designed you to be. Don’t lose heart. Being 5 foot 10 inches tall and 135 pounds is exactly how you are supposed to be. You have a very high metabolism. You can eat like a horse and not gain weight. It really is a good thing so don’t worry about the bullying and have fun. High school will be spent making life long friends who will always be there for you. That’s what’s important!
yeah, that’s not going to last dude. I know she’s beautiful and y’all have a lot of good times together. That is all part of being in the youth group together. But you do grow apart over the summer.
Then…you meet the young woman you want to propose to. Eventually God answers you prayers, so keep loving and do not close your heart up too tightly.
3. You will get through this because…
deep down you’re a fighter. You keep pushing forward despite all the junk life throws at you. This is only a season in your life. You are a lot stronger than you realize…trust me!
that you are not good enough! Trust me you are! Stu, it’s not because of anything you do. Its what God does in you! Just be patient and do your best.
5. These experiences will help you learn…
that you can not please everyone. There is just no way possible.
You will also realize that despite the fact you can’t find pants that actually fit you, your body size is perfect. It is exactly that way God designed you to be. You will eventually come to terms with it 🙂
And the wonderful blonde you were in a relationship with that ended that summer set the standard for what you looked for in a girl/woman. One who loved God first, was always willing to listen and offer help when they could and loved you despite your faults. They are all still friends with you too. So see, it not too bad. And she applauds the man you become!
Your strength to keep going comes from God because He has a purpose for you. Dude, you eventually have your prayers answered and become a father to two of the most amazing blessings in the world!
Also you learn that by keeping your heart open just enough, for this one special amazing and beautiful woman to see the real you, you were able to experience real love and real intimacy in a relationship.
But most importantly what you learned is that God truly does love you and that He forgives you! Now forgive yourself and run!
