    Last night I went out with my best friend

    and another friend, and we met up with some other guys who I know but wouldn't exactly say I'm friends with. Now those guys keep texting me asking to meet up and hang out but I can't. It's nothing to do with them, they're nice enough, it's just that my world is too messed up for...

    I'm just realizing how hard it is

    for my parents to cope with the way I am. Little things like the way I dress, the way I talk, even the way I eat is just very frustrating to watch for them. I can't imagine how disastrous it'll be when they know that I'm gay
