Fear was definitely a part of Aaron's challenge. He was fearful of the judgment of his parents who, in his words, "are very conservative in their thinking." The thought of ending up with a man created deep feelings of loneliness regarding his family. He was torn because he wanted to pursue his sexual truth, but he didn't want to lose his family. He needed to reach a place where he was willing to risk losing his family rather than lose himself through not discovering his sexual truth.
It is important in opening to your sexual truth to understand that sexuality is on a continuum between heterosexual and homosexual, and anywhere you are on that continuum is what is right for you. This is about discovering what brings you inner peace and joy. In order to discover your own sexual truth, you need to give up looking for an objective right or wrong and remember that God speaks to us through our feelings. Whatever brings you peace and joy is what is right and loving for you.
