Today, September 27, marks the day, 3 years previously, where I changed my life forever.
Opening the door from a dark place and into the life I was meant to live. I accepted the fact I had been denying for years. Constantly telling myself “it isn’t okay for you to be gay”.
Today marks the 3rd anniversary of the day I told myself…”it’s okay to be gay.”
Saying these words to myself and then to others was the most exhilarating, and also the most reluctant emotion I’ve ever had.
Bashing your own self for so long ultimately creates a euphoric feeling of believing in yourself for once after converting the internal hate into love. I knew I was gay and I had finally accepted it and that in turn, had changed everything.
The heaviest of weight had been lifted off my shoulders, a gloomy shadow that had been cut away from me. This new version of myself was pure, and shimmered in the brightest light.
I had ressurected into my strongest form, rising above the self neglect from before.
I was my own hero.
I was free.
