Open Question: I feel like trapped between two thoughts? NEED HELP?

I am 19. I am gay & i have like war of two thoughts or between negative & positive.
when i realized i was like guys, a thought came in my mind was that is it real ? or it is just phase. But then i remember that from childhood i always attracted to guys from that age (i think from 9) when i even don’t know The word GAY. i never talked to anything about it, at my teens where my each & every friend & my brother (his is the one who really understands me) always talk about how that girl is hot…!!!!!, Ohhh look at her boobs & curves…… but i always think ok, yeah she is beautiful (but not seductive way)

At teen we all watch p**n so do i. First i enjoyed it very well but i got really bored by straight p**n then for new experience i see a gay p**n & that really attracted me & enjoyed even more. then i started to watch gay soaps. (then i accept myself as gay & i feel so happiest person in world & proud too) When i heard word like true love / commitment, the first thought came in my mind is love between 2 guys. In fact both NPH-David Burtka & Bradgelina r my fav.couples but i found NPH & david more committed more in love.(that doesn’t mean Brandgelina r not).

But after some time once i saw a movie in one seen a gay guy was got abused. That makes me so scared but i came out from that but just for that instance a thought came in my mind should i reconsider this whole gay thing? (i know it sound so crazy & illogical) then i my mind gets distracted by other negative factors like cheating BF (but i am still single) / dis-respecting society / sexual abuse / STI’s / murder etc.

I am not a negative person. & i am not saying that these negative possibilities that I’ve mentioned gonna happen to me or i am scared or afraid of it but yeah that r bringing me down. When i accepted myself, i knew that there will very few people will be with me, society will hate me (it is not bothering me), i am in India so i am not sure that i get my true love. But i were very confident, hopeful, positive about being gay. But i think i got little bit depressed by these negative aspect. (i am not losing my hope or faith or trying to change myself).

But one part of me says don’t worry if something is destined to happens with me that will happen (i mean whole love, relation, commitment thing & other bad things too) just believe in urself & do what u want. and all is going to be well, happy & fine. But one part of thought in practical way. that there is guarantee that i will find my soul-mate, so maybe i will have to spend my rest of life like any other indian guy live or something bad could happen to me. so to make myself positive i decided to came out to my best friends & they will surely understand me. But i am not feeling confident about it.

guys i need ur opinion about the whole gay thing & tell me should i share it or came out to my friends. Thanks 4 reading & answering.

Single Use Sugar Scrub Cubes

I love the feeling that a sugar or salt scrub gives to your skin. Part moisturizing and part exfoliation. But they’re so messy – and sugar scrubs require a preservative to keep from getting moldy.

This variation adds melt and pour soap to the mix – so it holds up as a single use cube – and the soap helps with rinse off and clean up. And because no water is added, you don’t need to add a preservative. Give them a try!

Making Your Soap Whiter

Many soaps in stores today are white – bright white – but because they are made with added colorants and/or surfactants and detergents – they’re artificially white. Natural soap, especially soap made with olive oil is going to have a slightly tan or beige color. But it is possible to adjust your real soap recipe to be whiter using only natural ingredients.

Some tips to do it:

  • The color of the soap is largely determined by the ingredients. While some base oils will give you a nice, white soap, others (incl. olive oil) will impart a more beige/green tint to the soap.
  • Fragrance and essential oils can impart their color to the soap significantly…especially any fragrance oils that contain vanilla.
  • Using milk or other liquids in the recipe can shift the soap’s color too.
  • While titanium dioxide is an additive, and has a chemical-like name, I pretty much think of titanium dioxide as a pretty “natural” ingredient.
