This is an open letter to all those who have known me from earlier in my life and have become aware of this site. Although this site is public, I have given the site address to certain people in my life. Their family or friends may be introduced to this site as a result. I am happy that those people can understand what my family are dealing with and can support them should they need it.
If you have read some or most of the site, I am sure that this maybe a big surprise or a shock. I am not going to try to explain everything here as the site does that. This is to acknowledge you all.
Recently the site has had an increase in viewings, many visitors looking at a few of the pages and some in larger bites at a time. I unaware of specific reasons of such high interest. In the least, my site is probably an unexpected account of my life and myself! Perhaps it’s the quality of my writing or the subject content. But I doubt either, perhaps a simple need, desire or fascination to know or understand what went on for so many years. Or of more recent events in my life.
If you have taken the time to read a post or two you will already have an idea about my life. If you were connected to me, I hope that you are able to understand to some extent and can forgive my secretive behaviour keeping this hidden for so long. That was a result of fear, lack of confidence, lack of understanding of myself and a whole lot more. I feel that I managed to resolve the things that held me in that place and have been able to move forward with my life – eventually! It has still taken a lot of courage and conviction to get here and can honestly say that I am very happy with my life overall and especially now. I like to think that most of you may be able to accept what I have done, or perhaps not! Either way I hope this is of some help to you.
It has taken me a lifetime to understand and accept the reality for myself. For others to discover this now, I realise that it may not sit well with you depending on your point of view and or involvement in my life. We cannot change the past and I personally focus on now and the future. We spend our lives doing what we believe to be right in making the correct choices at that time. It doesn’t always transpire to appear that way in retrospect. I have many things to be proud of such as my two children. I will always be their father no matter how I live my life. I am lucky to have them and know they have enriched my life.
I have no issues if any of you wish to contact me with questions or comments and will try to answer any questions that you choose to propose. I also recognise that I may be inviting more than I bargained for. However, with the decisions I have made with my life come with many other things that I am dealing deal with and embrace it all.
My hope is that my articles provide some answers to parts of my life and give an insight to what I am doing and dealing with at this pont in my life.
I thank you for taking the time to visit my site.
