Sherry’s Lesson about telling the truth…

Today’s Sherry Lesson:

Today’s lesson is brought to you by the truth…yes, that simple…the truth…

Sherry was a stickler for the truth and from me, she did not tolerate anything less. Not even when she seemingly gave me no choice but to lie…

Like when I was 16 years old and dating my first girlfriend…my God I loved this girl! (I still do BTW…this relationship, with all of its difficulty and ups and downs is the relationship that allowed me to feel who I really am and eventually to become who I am)…

Anyway, my Mom was not pleased…OK…she was fucking pissed…I got thrown out, and momentarily disowned…it was horrible and painful and scary…and my Mom, in her infinite wisdom, told me that she was about to ask me a question and I had best tell her the truth, or she would throw me out…Mom asked me if I was “dating” this girl…if I was gay…
Of course, in my infinite wisdom, I said “no”…I did not feel as though I had any other choice…gay vs. homeless…I’m not gay because I sure as hell cannot be homeless…

This did NOT end at all well…because now she was hella pissed that I had lied to her…I had an amazing friend at the time and I went to stay with she and her family until things settled down a bit at home…

Moral of this story is that the important truth is ALWAYS your truth…ALWAYS…and it either is or it is not…and your truth can never be so because of or for someone else…that is not truth…

So, that is my Sherry Lesson for this day…given the same choice today, I would be gay and homeless…because MY truth is more important to me than anything else…I love you Mom…thank you for this lesson that finally became a blessing…
I believe in the good things coming…with all of my heart…
