How to Get Over a Breakup
Gaze Guests

There is much advice out there this vid puts it succinctly. It’s been suggested that December and January are the worst times of the year for break-ups? Granted they happen all year round. They were the one. You’re miserable without them. What do you do?

  • Focus on the brighter future.
  • Make a clean break. Stop all contact with your eX. Delete their phone number.
  • Look for someone new ‘Nothing gets you over the last one like the next one.’
  • Do not dwell on the past.
  • Confide in some one you trust.
  • Treat yourself well,  exercise &  get plenty of rest. Focus on YOU again.
  • Keep your self busy. Take up an activity.  Join a group.

How do I know if I am over my ex?
That is the $64,000 question. A good gauge is when you no longer want to get back together with the person. When the thought of your eX having a relationship (and, gasp, sex) with someone else doesn’t turn your stomach.

Caroline Casey: Looking past limits

Activist Caroline Casey tells the story of her extraordinary life, starting with a revelation (no spoilers). In a talk that challenges perceptions, Casey asks us all to move beyond the limits we may think we have.

Caroline had a secret and didn’t know it until she reached her 17th Birthday

Being absolutely true to yourself is freedom…….. If you truly believe and I mean from the bottom of your heart you can make change happen & we need to make it happen because every single one of us woman, man, gay, straight, disabled, perfect, normal, whatever. Everyone of us must be the very best of our selves. I no longer want anyone to be invisible we all have to be included and stop with the labels. The limiting of labels because we are not jam jars, we are extraordinary, different, wonderful people.

What is Sexuality?

By Seamus Meaney

Sexuality is about how you think, act and feel. Part of your Sexuality is your sexual identity. This is decided by what sex you fancy (Boys or Girls) or if you fancy both. During Puberty and our teen years we start to explore our sexuality and to figure out what we like.

You might feel unsure about your sexuality or who you find attractive might change during your life. Your sexual identity is something you should take time to decide about: what you like and feel comfortable which is different for everyone

Some people may know from a very young age that they are gay, lesbian , bisexual, or transgender and others may be confused about there sexuality right into adulthood. Working out whether you are gay, lesbian, bi or straight can be confusing. You don’t have to tell your friends about your sexuality or who you fancy unless you really want to but remember, it does help to talk.

Gwen Araujo m2f

Coming out as GLBT can be a hugely positive experience – a liberating time, when you embrace your sexuality. Telling friends or family is not always easy but if you choose someone you trust, the chances are they will be supportive. Whatever your sexual identity, remember it is only one part of your life; so embrace how you are feeling and enjoy been an individual.

It is important that you feel comfortable with your sexuality. If you want to talk to someone about your sexuality, speak to your local LGBT service in Kilkenny contact
