I’ve noticed a decrease in comments on both my blog and facebook and I’m almost 100% sure it has to do with my spiritual talk that I share somewhat regularly. And before you (the ones that don’t comment like they used to) start feeling somewhat guilty, don’t. It’s okay and I understand. And it’s not just comments, it’s friends (off and online), it’s family, it’s everything.
Something I noticed, being the observer that I am, is seeing the similarities of being spiritual and being gay. No, I’m not gay but I do have gay friends that have shared with me. You feel hated all the sudden by some, judged constantly by many, and even feel abandoned & challenged by your own family.
I once read something…
“Gay & Lesbian people are the same people they were before, they only love differently.”
So lets put that into my perspective…
“Spiritual people are the same people they were before, they only love differently.”
That is so the truth. I’m still me. I’m sarcastic, feisty, hard-headed, but I know I love differently than I did before. I have a love & appreciation for others more now than I ever did and of course, I have a love for God that I never had.
Whether or not you agree with gay & lesbian lifestyle or those with a deeper faith (like myself), is completely irrelevant. It’s about accepting a person for who they are, even when it’s different than what you’re accustomed to. Don’t run from what you don’t know or aren’t comfortable with. Talk it out, ask questions, but whatever you do, don’t hate.
