I got the best news this week! I’m going to be a home (flat) owner!!!! For those that know me and my story you will know that this is a big deal. It means I can finally move out of my parents place and start living life the way I want to, and in pride month no less. What better opportunity could I ask for? It means that I can live with the love of my life, and do all the cute and fun couple-y things that we were always meant to do.
It means I can just be me.
That’s the main point really. No more hiding who I am, no more having to answer to others. Free to be who I want, go where I want, come back to the flat whoever I want. It’s not like I’m in a jail sentence at home, but the comments made on how late I come back home do take their toll. I’m the type of person who wants it to be easy, don’t cause too much of a fuss and that way no fights or arguments happen. I mean I am human and I will provoke sometimes, but for the most part I’m easy going and want things to be the same.
I got the news when I was with my love. He is excited too, and I’m excited for both of us as well. I got round to telling my parents and they are happy for me, but I also know the worst is yet to come. They will be fine with me leaving (I’m the last to leave - which is a big deal in South Asian families), but also they will want me to stay. I have however been conditioning them for this, and that has taken effort and practice to make it work. So hopefully things will go fine and they will be ok with me going, and not coming home every weekend.
The only other thing that I have to consider is if they want to visit the flat to see me. I have already decided that if they do then I won’t hide anything. It will all be there in plain sight, and tell them that their son has found love, and introduce that love to them. It won’t be an easy ride for sure, and I am certain it will be the end of them wanting to talk to me, however, I can’t wait anymore. My time is now, and I won’t allow anyone to stand in the way of that. I’m determined to make it work, and love my life.
After all, it’s mine to live anyway.
