One of the most frustrating--and the most beautiful--things we humans are given are choices. It allows us to find ourselves--to see what makes us individual and insight to our own existence. Daily, I find myself discovering and questioning and wondering why I am, who I am, and what I am. I want to know the questions you've asked yourselves and why it is important to you. I hope I can gain more insight into myself this way. I'll start! In my teenage years, I found that I am not straight or gay or bisexual or whatever I might "be." I found myself attracted to males and attracted to females and attracted to those who do not identify as either gender. That's cool with me. I asked myself, "Where do I fall in this classification?" I realized that by labeling myself, I was also inhibiting myself to whatever "classifcation" I feel under. I realize now that I am me, and I am not someone who is gay or someone who is straight. Also in my teenage years, I always asked myself, "Am I ready to pursue a romantic relationship?" Until this last year I felt like I wasn't emotionally, mentally, or psychologically ready, so I didn't pursue a relationship. I feel that now I am truly ready, and I think now I have more to offer to a prospective partner. My last question I asked myself was this: "Do the friends I have foster an environment that influences me to have integrity, pride, and love?" Whether we realize it or not, we choose the people who we befriend. We are not just given friends. We make friends. When I realized in college that the people who I befriended had poor attitudes, destructive lifestyles, or belittling opinions of others, I realized I had to drop them. And now I could be any happier with the friends who I've made who love me for me. :D That's it! What about you? What choices and questions have you made in your life?
