We do not need to suffer or live a life as less than to be our authentic queer selves.
Most of us carry this idea around subconsciously, and we may be holding ourselves back from financial or emotional well-being, believing that this is what we must do in order to be ourselves.
While it’s true that there is purpose to experiencing a lack love from family that enhances our well-being, this isn’t intended to be a permanent or lifelong experience. What we are meant to find when love and acceptance are in short supply is that there is more to our lives than the persons that don’t understand gives us. Intense relationships like these can distract us from the subtler realm of our community, so a time of deficiency can be queer awakening. However, once we recognize the realm of our community, we must remember to hold it at the center of our lives. Once our connection to the community is fully intact, we feel so compelled to share our abundance that lack becomes a thing of the past.
If you find that you are experiencing suffering in knowing who you are, know that security comes from an unshakable connection to your soul. Once you make that connection, the community will probably flow more easily into your life. Remember, the Universe wants you to be happy.
