Gah bah humbug ! "venting"

You meet someone nice , someone who don't drink , you get on well for a few months then they go all weird on ya

Oh blahdy .. blah blah i was hurt in the past and am an emotional wreck , ohh blah-de-blah blah i'm gonna stay paralysed with fear and not do anything other than whinge about my predicament . i'm gonna get mardy and not seize the day GRRRRR

Right this guy is not going to suffer this kinda thing , this guy brings on the glory of creation this guy wears his heart on his sleeve , this guy roars at life like a mighty elephant , this guy ain't ever going to hide from pain and fear , this guy aint ever going to stop living till the day i die . What i'm doing now is the most important thing .

My mate needs to pull his socks up and get with it otherwise i'll be roaring off to vistas new on my sober bike .

I might be bizarre fruit but i'm gonna be the bestest one this guy can achieve . Nothing and no person is going to stop this sober guy , living in glory .

It is said , it .. is done ,

Bestwishes , m

Hey Y'all ,
the lines of communication are open i'm still waiting to see what happens ..

When i look at my life i have no real hardship , i have anything someone could reasonably want from life and maybe more , luckily being born in the city i was, in the country i was , in the times we are all living in .

How glorious to live in a place and time where one can have an issue with ones lover, even more ones homosexual lover, post about it and get kind responses from around the world .

I feel the common bond we all share and unites us tonight , it gives me great strength under my sober wings

You are all great . thanks very much , bestwishes, m

I look around this world, and see that everyone is codependent in one way or another. Nobody is perfect--if you spend your whole life searching for the perfect mate, or thinking you can make your mate perfect, you'll go crazy.

Well in a few days things change ,

My friend has got himself together a bit , maybe got in touch with what you all might know as an "attitude of gratitude" in relation to how things are for him … maybe found some acceptance , had a good long chat with me

Nice to have the nice guy back …

Bestwishes, m

Hey just thought i'd re-visit this .. 3 months down the line and things are going fine .. 7 months in total

keeping the lines of communication open , letting people have space and freedom , not immediately assuming there is something wrong … how terribly drunk, stuck and difficult i was in the past … sometimes i still get fits of pique (see above) but as time goes on i'm learning and growing .

cheers , m
