Like he was really hesitant and I started feeling this rushing panic attack starting from the bottom of my heart.

So some background, I told my mom that I'm gay back in May 2015 and it... didn't go spectacularly. We haven't really talked about it since then and I basically begged her not to tell my dad because I was worried he might stop paying for my school.

Anyway, back to my panic attack. My dad was like "so i was talking to your mom.... and she told me about your preference." In that moment I stood the fuck up and was like WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS. My dad was just like boy... sit your ass down let me finish. (What he said next will melt your heart!)

He told me that he doesn't care. That he would support me no matter what I do in my personal or private life and that he'll love me no matter what type of person I am. He was just worried about my behavior for the past few years, which obviously has been changing since I realized I was gay. I don't know how to feel tbh. This is so out of left field because I was expecting the worst out of him (we're Muslim so like... I wasn't really expecting my parents to get it). And I also don't have a very strong relationship with him to begin with. So I don't know what to think. Relief I guess? It could have gone a lot worse than this so I'm a bit thankful for that.

I'm just kind of in a state of shock right now I didn't expect this. I'm rethinking his role in my life now because before I didn't want him as a part of my future but now... idk.

Oh wow that's great! Really pleasant surprise, I'm sure.

Nice when people surprise you like that.

I watched so much garbage, I have no excuse for not watching Carol. 😞 I'll rectify that if I can find a copy of it at work, they should have at least a DVD/Blu-Ray of it.

Thanks for explaining it. I kinda guessed it has to be some sort of instrument, didn't see the image at the time however.

You don't, and it has (not released on blu in all countries though there are multiple releases for each territory).

Worth it just for the soundtrack.
Or just the cinematography.
Or just the acting.
Or just everything.

It's so good.



Really looking forward to Moonlight this year, well if it gets released here that is. Anyone has impressions of it?

That is definitely a wise suggestion. I'm pretty confident in my sanity since I had a psychotic break from taking a massive dose of mushrooms in my early 20s, because I was able to gather up my marbles within like an hour of the comedown. But there's really no need to play with fire when it comes to stuff that can really fracture your grasp on reality.

I oversold the esotericism thing a bit, what I'm working on now is mostly based around a virtue ethic, which is about as safe as drinking water, but I'm leaving the door open to some other stuff down the line which may not be as simple to deal with. Just trying to take a modular approach that can be expanded out as-needed, who knows if I'll ever really go there, some doors may be better left unopened, but I like knowing they're there.

Is it unfair of me to find the fact that my parents are Trumpers (considering Pence and the Republican Party are extremely anti LGBT+) disrespectful to me? I don't wanna be selfish but like, you should care more about your son's life and how a Republican presidency might affect him.

Of course my mom still mentions me marrying women sometime. So I'm uncertain as to why I'm even mildly surprised or affected.

Meditating on dispassion (which for the sake of clarity I sometimes render as 'non-desperation') is probably actually the single most wholesome thing that a person can do.

Not unfair, no. I think it definitely is disrespectful to an extent.

But the next question might be what it is that you gain from viewing it that way?
