Every boy deserves love, and every man too. The problem is learning to trust those feelings when we have them ourselves and when they are offered to us from safe people. How do we know where this will lead?
This is one that takes time to sort out, but in the meantime just know you aren't alone in struggling with this problem.
Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me. (Woody Guthrie)
