Psychotherapist Joe Kort wrote a book, published last year, titled 10 Smart Things Gay Men Can Do to Improve Their Lives.
What smart things does Kort recommend?
- Take Charge of Their Own Lives
- Affirm Themselves by Coming Out
- Resolve Differences With Parents and Relatives
- “Graduate” From Delayed Adolescence
- Avoid — or Overcome — Sexual Addiction
- Learn from Successful Mentors Who’ve Been There, Done That
- Take Advantage of “Therapy Workouts”
- Achieve — and Maintain — Rewarding Relationships
- Understand the Stages of Love
- Commit to Their Partner
As it happens, I’ve been suggesting some similar steps to ex-gays, even if they opt not to identify as gay.
But is that wise? How should this advice differ for ex-gays?
As always, constructive gay, exgay and nongay reader comments are welcome.
