I am frequently amazed at the human ability to adapt. The ability to accept as normal a situation which, if it had been described a week, a month, a year ago, would have been hard to imagine, let alone imagine as normal.
Adaptation is not evolution. It can be. But if it makes you accept a situation that should not be accepted, then it becomes harmful. So, I say REJECT NORMALCY. Reject it. Compare the life you have to the life you want, and BURN the difference. You know who you are. Reject reacting. ACT. Reject what other people might think. There is room for only one opinion in your head--yours. Eject all those other people who have come to reside there.
Reject the doubters (no risk equals no gain).
Reject the homophobic opinion (write with abandon).
Reject the people who are always right (without the consideration of others).
Reject the emotional jail that imprisons the spouse (and family).
Reject the immature man (and all the chaos he creates).
Reject that life has to become normal.
