I've hidden myself for 20 years in order to "fit" in society though I'm still in hiding I think
It all began when I joined secondary school when I realized that I had an attraction to a fellow student and he too was indeed attracted to we would spend lots of time together that other students started saying lots of stuff about us which led us to stop seeing each other more often but the real event that puts off completely was expulsion of the then school head prefect from school on charges of homosexuality we were all close friends so for the next 3 years it was hell for us we would meet only during holidays which went on till finished 'O' levels.
When we came back for A levels there was some freedom since here we had our own rooms but that was short-lived another student was expelled for the same reason by the way this was an all boys school later when we finished the A levels we lost contact since technology those days wasn't as it is now but we established contact when we joined university much as they were different geographical locations so somehow our relationship was strained that after he married and he has a daughter I also got a partner since there were demands from my family but it didn't last we separated I really didn't love this lady we had 4 kids together so I now live alone
