Individual Mentoring for Gay Men
Gay men in particular struggle with issues of masculinity, minority stress, self-judgment, isolation, hiding and protecting others rather than taking care of themselves. Often, there is shame of being gay and the fear of judgment when in the company of (straight) others. We are not compassionate with ourselves as we fear this will make us weak and expose us as flawed and inadequate. We fear we lose control and the mask that we have put on.
What if you felt that being gay was a gift? It makes you you. It makes you unique.
What if there was a way to hold feelings of shame and inadequacies with kindness and love, even in community with other gay men where we discover that being self-compassionate does not make us weak. It makes us strong (here is an article about the myth of self-compassion).
You must change yourself so that things can change on the outside. As Gandhi said, "be the change that you wish to see in the world." So we must turn towards the self-judgment that we have against ourselves, our own rejection and abandonment, in order find peace and transformation. And none of this says, "I comply!" On the contrary, it is a call to wise action, to being fierce.
