Keep moving forward

Taylor. 19. New York.
"Loving others starts with loving yourself" -Ellen Page

Okay I know I said I was giving up tumblr for lent (even in the non religious aspect) but,

Coming out has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me on a personal level. Minus the actual love aspect of it, I finally do feel at peace with myself. Like that one thing that didn’t seem right for all of those years finally does. 

I feel pretty confident and sure about this because spending 19 years believe you’re attracted to men and then all of a sudden find myself considering women without feeling freaked out is a pretty good starting sign. Also I’m just putting this out there - I reaaaally hate adam’s apples and chest hair. Not about that life.

But really, every single person I’ve told is beyond happy for me; when I tell them they think it’s so awesome and are so excited for me. People feel so honored and I’m really glad they feel that way, because I do trust them enough and respect them enough to let them know the real me! 

I’ve told nearly 40 people, some casually, some super emotionally but not one person has disliked me for what I told them. Some adjusting and taking all of the information in has occurred, yes, but I don’t know anyone else who can say they’ve had such a good experience with this. I’ve really been fortunate with the people I surround myself with. 

Lesbihonest, I’m Taylor and I’m gay. 

I’m so tired of feeling this alone. 

A dying friend once told me, ‘I wish I hadn’t spent so many Mondays wishing it were Friday. I also wish I had made better use of those Fridays, for better stories on Monday.’
