There has been so much I wanted to say, but unsure of how or where to say it. Like a shaken bottle of pop with the cap on, wanting to explode, letting go everything inside of them out. That's how I've felt lately- stuck.
To name a few things, my close friend confessed to me that she was bi, and another told me she was transgender. This came as a complete and utter shock, as neither of them seemed like those kinds of people. I also know a couple relatives who suffer with anxiety and depression, which is understandably difficult for the person themselves, but is also for the people around them. There are more and more things going on with my family as well, which at times, can be quite upsetting.
Everyone has that one chapter you would never read out loud.
And to top it off, none of my close friends get it. Like they don't understand why people choose to be a certain way.
Because lets face it- so many people don't go through things like this, but yet, so many do.
And that's why I've started this blog. It's a place to talk about the things we are too afraid to say aloud. A place where, teenager or adult, can be their selves entirely.
Surely I'm not the only one who feels like this?
I have this dream that people can listen one another, and are at ease when talking about deep subjects like these. That people can understand that people feel differently about everything.
So that we can stop pretending that we are "just fine".
That would be awesome.
I'm going to say what I want to say on this blog, and it would be really cool if you (whoever you are!) join me.
This can be like our very own space to talk about what it truly feels like to be ourselves.
I also love taking photos- it's amazing the way we can freeze and capture a point in time, forever. Like birthdays, cafés, road trips... It's like a physical memory! So I'll be posting a lot of those, too.
Anyways, that's all for now.
