Response to undergroundpanther (Original post)

15. You are not alone, undergroundpanther. Almost everyone within the LGBT spectrum

has had to deal with their own collective and individual form of loneliness, isolation and alienation, be they gay, lesbian, bi, transgender, intersex, or other. Coming to terms with our culturally designated uniqueness is almost always a challenge of some magnitude.

And even many straight folks face isolation, alienation, and loneliness.

I wish that I could give you some advice that would make your life totally awesome, but I can't. I can only offer you my support and understanding as another LGBT person, as a human being, and hope that your wishes come true.

That is what we are here for, and we are here for you.


You asked this question: "Am I the only one who feels this way?"

Of course you are not. I felt that way at one time, long ago. I don't feel that way anymore. It is possible that I am now the happiest person in the world. I love life, I love the world, and I'm never lonely anymore. I'm LGBT and I'm proud and I'm totally out and I don't give a rat's ass about what other people think of me. I don't need anyone else to make me happy, there is no one else that can make me happy, because the only person that can make me happy is me.

I'm running with that.

Things can get better. Things do get better. Things got better for me. Way better than I ever dreamed possible.

I hope things get better for you like they did for me. I highly recommend not giving up.
