Is this journey really right for you?
To put a difficult past behind you, your greatest weapon is usually forgiveness. Nothing gives you power and freedom like the ability to forgive people for what they did to you. Once you forgive, you are unbound, free to venture out into other places and experiences.
The problem with so many movements, from MeToo to critical race theory to cultural Marxism, is the inability to begin the conversation with forgiveness. You are enslaved by oppressors twice if you can't let go of the oppression: the event of your subjugation, and the eternal slavery of being angry about things that cannot be changed.
On the journey from gay to straight, this is one key thing you will have to be ready for. You can never move forward until you forgive everyone who did mean things to you. Abandon revenge. Try no longer to win old arguments.
It is the particular burden of men to forgive. Women bear the burden of being physically weaker, so they find it harder to let down their guard. You are not safe when you forgive, and women have to worry about safety for themselves and their loved ones. But on this journey you have to become fully male. You will take on the labor and danger of forgiveness. And that will set you free.
