The courage to follow your heart is so hard, well done!
I know from a few pm's that you "couldn't" , hopefully that word has left your lexicon.
This is exactly the reason i come back (as one thread asked). To see men find that they do have the courage and character to go against the grain and incredible pressure to see that however they have to live their life, they can!
keep trusting yourself and again, well done.
I had to get away before i could make a bridge back to my family. Time and compassion is what you have to give. Now ironically our bonds are even stronger because they are forged in honesty.
All the best
The need for love lies at the very foundation of human existence. Dalai Lama
