I'm unsure if my readers know, but I am gay. Everyday day I ponder on the way I would be treated on the basis of people knowing who I really am. People I interact with in classes I am unsure if they know my orientation and if they do, does it bother them? I also always wonder if being gay will hold me back in the things I want to accomplish in my life. I mean I don't want to be president, but I do want to be successful. And thats what the post secret is about. Its a scary thought waking up everyday and not knowing how you might be treated that day. It really is a form of segregation. I don't put it out there for everyone to see and I act just like everyone else, but if they knew, would things be different? Maybe these thoughts of segregation bother me so much because of my background. I came from a very conservative and traditional community. And i know how the people in that community though of it, it just bothers me.
After thinking about it for quite sometime I decided to post this secret. I figured it doesn't in the end matter what anyone knows or thinks about me. If they still like me and want to be friends then thats great, and if they don't, then thats too bad. I hope that one day I can feel like the person I love doesn't make a difference on the person I am.
