As the sun sets, the sun rises.
It’s a moment when you know you’ve made a good first impression.
The feeling of being accepted, and then being appreciated.
It was one of those things that happened a lot to me growing up.
It happened at a time when I didn’t feel I had any control over anything, and I really didn’t know how to cope with that.
You know, I was like, “I’m going to go home, I’m going home and go to sleep”.
And I just started crying and crying.
I was just in shock and I was devastated and I just couldn’t cope.
I didn´t know how I was going to live with myself afterwards.
So I was kind of just like, you know, just sit back and be a nice, quiet kid.
I wasn´t really thinking about anything, I just wanted to get away from everything and just let go.
And I did.
And now, almost 20 years later, I´m really happy to have been able to go back and share that with people.
I feel like I am one of the lucky ones.
I really enjoy it.
I like sharing the stories that I have and the things that I do.
And that was one thing I was really trying to do with this book.
Because it has been really difficult for me to come out of the closet as gay and be able to be myself.
I have a very narrow view of myself and I don´t want to be pigeonholed into one particular image.
But I am a big fan of the way I look and I think I do a good job of not trying to fit into a box.
I can really, really be myself, which is really important.
And you know I really appreciate that from people, because it shows that they appreciate me.
It also shows that I don’t have to hide what I am.
And it shows a lot of support for me.
Because that really helps me when I’m feeling really down.
It shows a real understanding of my self.
But it also shows a bit of self-awareness.
It is really interesting because I am very shy.
I am not really social.
I don`t do too much socialising and that kind of thing.
But people are just so open to me when they meet me.
They are open to hearing my stories and hearing my experiences.
And they have been so supportive.
I think they know that I am kind of an awkward person.
They know that sometimes I can be really, very awkward.
So, I really like that and I want to share that.
I want them to understand that.
And then, also, it is really great that people are coming out of my closet and I have to tell them what I was feeling and my experience.
So it has really been an incredible experience.
I hope it can inspire a lot more people to come to terms with their sexuality.
