Welcome to one of the most personal and self-confronting websites I have ever built. While we all mostly live a life of relative normality doing what society expects from us – many of us have a different life that exists deep within. I knew I was always a little different to how I perceived others; I knew that what I let people see on the outside was not what was really going on inside. Recently I have learned that I am not alone in this – many, many other people are the same but also keep the inner ‘them’ hidden. This may be because of the need to be seen as strong, reliable, mature, sensible, a provider, a lover, a parent… many external influences so our true selves and talents are restrained and locked away deep inside. This is my story of the road to bringing out the real me, the rediscovery of self, the rebirth of the true being that is me. You are welcome to join me on the journey and to contribute to the discussions (either here or on the Facebook page) all I ask of you is respect for all contributors, to listen and maybe learn a little for yourself. Those of you who have known me for years can expect some or that dry, wicked humour to appear, after all that is me, but you may also be surprised at some of the revelations as I open up and show what was really happening inside when I was being that funny and entertaining guy in public.
