I had something of a shock when I opened my daughter’s email yesterday. My daughter is living thousands of miles away for a year teaching people English.
She opened by asking “do you think I might be gay? as I do not seem to have found a life partner that I can settle down and have children with, what do you think?”
I told her that only she knows the answer to this question, does she dream of being with a man or a woman. She has had many boyfriends over the years and in the last 10 years non that were willing to settle down and make sacrifices with her but then she has not really wanted to give up travelling (she’s lived, worked and studied in many countries). She has been badly let down by one or 2 chaps and we as a family still feel the scars.
I don’t really mind if this is her life choice but must say that the one thing that keeps me fighting MS every day is the thought that I many one day have grand children to love, is this too much to ask.
I told her to pray to the higher being in her life (she has found God through yoga and meditation to be very helpful) and ask for guidance there. Also told her a few home truths about giving up on some of her dreams and principals (not all), if she wants to find that soul mate.
By the way, just before she left in August she had a passionate crush on the actor Ray Gosling, so I’m guessing she may not be gay.
Thank you for your thoughts.
