The paradox is that there are so many people who are exactly like you, and who would be very happy if they could know you, and most ecstatic if they could spend even a few minutes in your company.
The problem is that you don’t know who and where they are, and they don’t know who and where you are.
Then, what do you do?
You could start communicating what you feel and believe, what you truly want, being straightforward, pragmatic, regardless of how what you express could be misunderstood.
If you fail to communicate to the world what you deeply feel because you are afraid of being misunderstood, you are bound to be misunderstood forever.
If you are honest with yourself, if you dare to embrace what you have experienced to be right within, even if this may appear outrageous or controversial, it is inevitable that some people will not agree and understand, yet these people are hopeless. They will never understand you, no matter what you say or do.
Yet, if you speak your truth, you will be available to be acknowledged by those who can support you, simply because they are like you.
Hence be bold, make yourself visible, be in the limelight, express what you want to say, especially your most daring wishes, do it now, especially if you feel that you may be misunderstood. And if for the time being, you are too scared to go into the limelight, then wear a mask, use a nickname, play about it, yet find a way to speak your truth till your truth can become totally you.
