LATEST LETTER TO LISSA
I am a young male kapha and I have a bit of a problem… a bad problem.
I am attracted to other men.This is not a problem in itself, since I belive love is very important in life. However my family is strongly agaist homosexuality. If my brother found out he’d beat me up. If my mother found out she would have a heart attack( she has a weak heart).
I don’t have a partner, I’m only sixteen. I think the best thing to do would be to wait until I’m older and I have a partner who can support me in this. What should I do?
I think you need someone to talk with. At 16 this is a challenging time in your life anyway. It’s especially hard if you feel like you have to keep a secret. Seek out a teacher, or a counselor, or some adult you feel you can confide in. You’re not the only one in this situation. It would be really good for you to have some support, and to know that you’re not alone.
Keep me posted!
