The time has come for me to say goodbye...
I am hanging up my heels and leaving them behind... they are no longer a part of my life. At the end of a good summer I felt challenged by God to let go of the things holding me back. Heels were a part of my life that resulted in no good and they were a barrier between me in God (in the form of sexual sin... I'll leave the rest for you to work out!). As such I took the opportunity to get rid of all of my heels (about 9 pairs if I recall correctly) and put them in a charity donations clothes bin type thing... no doubt they've probably put in some charity shop and probably been sold by now. I hope someone finds them useful! In some senses I miss wearing heels... but it certainly makes my life easier not having to worry about who's staring at my feet and who I'm going to bump into in the street who doesn't know I wear heels. It's also less expensive, which is good when I have financial commitments elsewhere, and little money coming in.
It was an easy decision to make - I don't expect all of you to understand this as it's a Christian thing... The decision to give up 'heeling' was that of an act of obedience... obey God or obey my own sexual desire. Well, I think God has got more prosperous plans for my life than my dick, so I went with God.
I still believe men have the right to wear what they like, and you certainly won't catch me tut-tutting under my breath if I see men wearing heels on the street (not as though that's happened since I met with Calv and Xaphod anyway..). I might look twice just to check my eyes weren't lying though! I don't condone men wearing heels, but if you want to that's fine. It's just caused unexpected issues in my life.
I really do wish all you heel-wearing blokes the best for your heel-wearing future, and your future in general. The board seems to be growing well and you have a good community here. I can tell you're probably not going to die out, which is a good thing for those with a healthy interest in heels.
I hope the day finally arrives when men can wear what they choose, but you will probably find me wearing my normal jeans/tshirt/trainers which I find comfortable. I still wear what I want... my choice of clothes is not dictated by fashion, but by me and what I find comfortable.
Sorry if that's come out as a bit of a ramble and a bit of a surprise to some of you, but... that's where I am... and I'm unlikely to return to wearing heels as long as I'm staying on track with God, and I have every intention of staying with him, and I have great friends and a fanastic girlfriend supporting me in that. The more I say about God the more I feel I'm alienating most of you... but I hope you understand.
I've said enough now I think. You probably got the message in the first line so I shall write no more.
Toodle pip and all the best...

P.S. I'm not passing judgement on anyone elses' heel wearing and saying that it's wrong. It's just wrong for me. And as with anything in life - always question whether something is right in all respects before going with it (especially the case if you're Christian and you have a personal relationship with God).
