PL Needs a break...

I've been catching up with Moho blogs lately, some of them are heart-wrenching, some give hope and some I just can't make sense out of. This happens ever so often so it is OK; maybe I just need to detach myself from blogs for a while.

I've considered just ending this blog since I personally don't have the conflict of being Mormon and gay, or being gay and married and all of its complications. I won't shut the blog down because I do believe that my story does have a moral to be learned in the Mohosphere the one about DONT GET MARRIED TO A WOMAN TO CURE YOUR GAYNESS!!!! I recognize that I need to pay it forward and help those that might be in the steps that I was a couple of years ago, when I started peeling the layers and figuring out what my life meant and the train-wreck that it became for a while, so if you need me, my email address is in my profile, I'm more than willing to talk on the phone or text  and if you want and there's always Facebook!!

But for my own sanity, I think I need to start getting a real life...



  1. I'm endlessly saddened by your departure.

  2. Here's to "sanity" and "real life"...

    But I still don't see why you can't blog about your sane and real life, even if you've resolved other issues.

  3. I'm with Beck - the Mormon queeroshere needs people who have found balance in their lives. It gives hope to others who are still feeling conflicted.

    But, there is a time and a season for everything. If you do choose to depart, your voice will be missed.

  4. Although you're one of my best friends in the world and I can get a little much needed wisdom from you anytime, it breaks my heart to see you go, bro. Please--take a couple of aspirin, enjoy a month's down time, and then hit the ground running. XOXOXOX

  5. I always find it sad when people work through their own issues and then move on. (Well, happy that they work through their own angst. Sad that they move on.)

    I think it that blogs where we could see people who have worked through their issues living and loving life would be good.

    With the "It gets better" campaign I think it would be cool to actually see that. What is life like after "it [got] better"?


    I wish the best though and plan on stalking you on Facebook more now. :)

  6. Yes, please write about your *real* life from time to time!

  7. Thank you all for your comments. Truth is blogging is therapeutic but I want to talk about many other things besides gay stuff. I had an old blog "way back when" so I think I may go back and use it from now on but it will have lots of things besides my gay life. It will simplify trying to figure which email to use and/or which identity to follow. I'll do one more posting here and then move things permanently there. I am also linking it from Facebook but I'm not going to make any kind of announcement on it. I'll just let people discover it as they want/wish.
