six months is the amount of time I have been out of the closet, today.

Wow.  Six months.  How coincidental that it falls in the middle of NYC's Pride weekend.  It seems like a lifetime that just passed by in an instant.  I feel so fortunate at the people I've met and the experiences I've had that I can't imagine my life being different as it is now; nor would I want to.  Well, that is unless that other life includes Brad Pitt.

When I came out, I was asked for advice on how I did it.  Thinking about it, I can pinpoint my most important realization: Live your life the way you want to (as long as you're not hurting anyone else).  If you truly believe in that, that is where your drive for living will come from; and things have a way of working themselves out.

I've been doing that for the past six months, and so far, it's worked out for me.  (Disclaimer: I waive any and all liability for the advice in this post; especially if you want to marry enter into a civil union with your dog.)

6 months... I hope you brought an extra pair of shoes with you from your closet... otherwise, it's time to buy new ones.

Congrats on coming outside to find what's on the inside.

Hope the best is yet to come.

Good on you, Jase. soon it'll be so much apart of you that you won't even remember when your "out-aversary" is.
