It’s been far too long since I’ve written like this.
I’ve just been reading over old diaries, feeling my voice through them, knowing my heart.
It made me think of how I used to do that, here. How I used to be unafraid, how I understood that sharing my heart was something I needed to do, like breathing.
I write my heart because I want you all to see it is okay to be vulnerable.
More than okay.
Necessary, even, if you are someone like me.
So I wanted to find you again, in this place, as myself.
And I wanted to tell you, whoever you are, whatever your story: it is okay to be yourself.
It is okay to be your beautiful, however you are, self.
