I Write this testimony with the hope that others may benefit from the ideas expressed.
I grew up in a close-knit family—happy and well parented, successful in school, enjoying good relationships with friends and family. Through childhood and into my teens I became acutely aware of homosexual attractions. This awareness did not lead to homosexual relations, but rather to a complete erosion of my self-esteem. Amid the promise of young adulthood, I suffered from much emotional pain. I shared these feelings with no one, and felt afraid, ashamed, and eventually, totally desperate.
When in college I looked for a brief time to the religion in which I had been raised, searching for answers. But it was of no practical help. From my earliest recollection I had nurtured a desire for healing, although I thought I had no way of finding it or escaping from suffering.
