This morning, I woke up. Well, this happens all the time so nothing special there. But this morning was different. Last night was truly wonderful. I am now in a relationship for the first time in my life. I have the greatest girlfriend in the world (I may not have experience, but I know this in my heart.) and all though this may be long distance, I know we can make this work.
Sure, it may seem sad that this is new to me at the age of 23, but this is a true milestone for me. After spending the majority of my life as an obese person, I felt that I could never have a normal life; that I would always be condemned to ridicule and hushed judgement. Granted, I am fairly optimistic and I felt fine about my size at the time because I kept thinking, 'How can I miss something I never had?'. In retrospect, it's tragic that I had lost my entire childhood and teenage years. But ultimately, I think it saved me from making any foolhardy decisions and getting hurt physically and emotionally more than I did; name-calling is nothing to me now. Now that I have reached a normal weight and can do anything I please, I know exactly what I want in life and I know that there is nothing holding me back and I can make measured decisions that are beneficial for all concerned. Hence this is why that I now feel like I have come full circle. I am a normal guy; eccentric, maybe quirky but intrinsically normal. I may not be a risk-taker, but I'm not a boring soul.
You may be wondering why I'm telling you this, but this is something I've wanted to do for 4 years and now I have, I feel elated. If you have read this, thank you - it pleases me that you care about my goings-on. :)
