Our expert says:
Well, in life we are often faced with opportunities / invitations which sound too good to turn down ; and some turn out to be marvellous, some disappointing, and som disasterous. What becomes more important is what we choose to allow ourselves to learn from the experience, which is often not what is on the curriculum. The MA sounds like a most peculiar experience. And I can't imagine anything so outrageous and improper as your having been segregated for being gay --- unless you were yourself being annoyingly and disturbingly busy making this an issue that annoyed others, the instiution behaved unconstitutionally and improperly in doing that,
From the sound of it, you would really benefit from a period of counselling with a good local psychologist --- NOT one with Analytical leanings, which is a total waste of time and money, but a more business-like CBT style counsellor, which can be far more practical, and would help you feel more confident and better able to achieve whatever personal goals you formulate. Maybe a local gay organization could help you find such a counsellor who was gay-friendly, in the sense of being sensible enough to attend to your real interpersonal difficulties, rather than assuming there was something wrong about being gay and trying to focus on that.
