Given that we are in February, which is not only Black History month but also the month of LOVE, I felt compelled to share this message with y'all. When I tell you all my light is working like crazy right now. I mean it, the attraction is real heavy. An anomaly occurred for me a little while ago. As a vertical, a person who was born with HIV, we are already rare within the HIV/AIDS population. Yet and still I was blessed to be able to find who I consider my TWIN. This person may not feel the same way about me, but the point is for me this was something I never thought in a million years would happen. For my sake, I hope that this isn't the case.
If you ask all the female HIV advocates in the US, they will tell you how difficult it is to find a straight man living with HIV in this world. As many of them are living in so much fear of being stigmatized as a gay man, you don't see really any straight men speaking out for the cause or openly sharing their HIV positive status. I was blessed that my light attracted me to this super handsome vertical black man who was less than a year younger than me. Meaning we were born into this extremely unique experience at almost the exact same time. Literally, like everything about this man I thought was perfectly designed for me. The conversations I was able to share with him were unlike anything I ever experienced in this whole entire world. Nobody I've ever talked to or been with was able to relate to me in the way that he could. It's funny how things work out. Sometimes God will give you exactly what you wanted just to show you that it is not at all what you need. I feel like the most high placed what I thought was the perfect person in the world for me right in front of my face only to show me that in fact nothing is perfect and I deserve much more.
