As of writing this blog post,
it’s been a year since I came out publicly. It’s been quite a year – one that’s opened my eyes to so many people and ideas, only to make me feel like I still know very little.
I often think about the innate need for all humans to feel accepted, by friends, my family, by society. While the fortunate ones have developed a thick skin and brushed off any need for external validation, most of us still care about what others think about us, and seek support and understanding.
