If only so he won’t be taken advantage of by other people.
So I went to the meeting place, met him and saw a tall (taller than my 5’7″), bigger (arms and torso more built than mine) and good looking kid. He didn’t look 14 at all, he was like a boy in a man’s body.
He is such a dashing young man and I’ve never felt anything like what I felt with him in my life. I would like to tell you how much it means to me that you and your blog exist. I believe in living in the present, though I sometimes dwell on the past but I was never a visionary of the future up until when I realized how much it would help me to straighten myself up if I look forward to something that hasnâ€™t been realized yet.
I could have gone blind forever, unmindful and ignorant of the things I should be aware of. I might never have the chance to meet you but still I know you are family. To say that I dream to be a journalist or a writer would be an understatement, I want to become one.
I don’t know how it happened, but after a while we were holding hands. That his hand covered mine, bigger, rougher, compared to my slender and softer hand.
The Men’s Retreat, through a set of non-religious activities and lecturettes done within a weekend, will use the power of self-awareness and community to enable you to appreciate where you are in your current life, identify limiting beliefs and behaviors, and chart a new and more core-connected way forward.
Enjoy quality time with the most important person in your life–YOU.
The weekend getaway is a hilltop retreat house just half-an-hour away from Ortigas, in a safe and affirming space designed for insightful introspection.
Now I am 19, and am trying to straighten up and make the most of this last teen year, but this feeling of unease due to being aware that such a disease is not just something that people older than me are vulnerable to I started to become scared.
By then stories of young men falling to the ground like mosquitos like what you said started to surface and I tried to deny it to myself that I am at risk too.
Just a different name, different sizes and different identities but we belong in just one community.
