I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

GAY MEN & ROCK BOTTOM

A lot of gay men don’t tackle their ‘bad habits’ until they hit rock bottom. For many, rock bottom is becoming HIV-positive.
For others, it’s dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts. But it doesn’t have to be like this and no gay man needs to be a ‘hot mess’.

Unfortunately, as a gay community we think that having a hot body will get us compliments. Sticking a picture of your abs on your online profile tends to get a lot more messages, so we instantly feel better about ourselves. What this teaches us is that a hot body equals attention. This does nothing to help build up our confidence and inner strength to deal with the emotional issues which lead us to make bad decisions regarding sex, drugs and alcohol.

Ask yourself if you are happy with who you are. If the answer is ‘yes’ then there is not much you can do. Just be aware of your habits. If the answer is ‘no’ then it should be obvious that the way you are leading your life is not working, and you should do something about it before you get to the point of no return.
