While I am glad my cousin has come out as gay and found a happy relationship – or good enough to move to a new state. His actions mirror my own with Ben. I’ve read that due to stunted social development, homosexuals truly enter identity development until they come out. This means that learning to navigate relationship dynamics does not occur until the first relationship. This explains the teenage behavior in grown men and women that I have seen. What age am I behaving at? Have I finally reach 34?
Life has been relatively quiet. No drama – just work, and writing (which I need to do more of). There has been no emotional upheaval. The most world changing event was moving apartments, otherwise it has been a plateau of slice-of-life. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. I do know it means when it all turns to shit, it will be a big heaping pile.
