hi. With everything going on in the world right now, I haven’t had a moment to think about pride month. First off, happy first pride to anyone who is newly out! Last year was my very first openly out pride and it was magical. Literally magical. I spent 22 years of my life not telling a single person the emotions and feelings I had within myself that I couldnt understand. Until I moved to Los Angeles at 18 years old, I had no idea the word bisexual existed, let alone what it meant. The first memory I have of questioning my sexuality was in 3rd grade. I remember having the thought, “well, I still like boys a lot, so that means I can’t possibly be gay. whew. I just have to ignore the things I feel about girls. I’m not gay. I cant be gay.” I was so fucking afraid. And confused. I grew up very catholic and was taught that who I am as a person is sinful. And even now, as an almost 25 year old, I still catch myself having thoughts like “maybe I should just date men, because it won’t cause any disruption”. I still sometimes feel like being bisexual isn’t taken seriously. I still sometimes feel like my sexuality is fetishized or looked at as a phase. But I am so proud to say that I AM BISEXUAL. Thank you for accepting me, and understanding me. Every message I get about someone coming out because of my posts or videos about my own sexuality makes everything so worth it. There is, and I really mean this, NOTHING more empowering than allowing yourself to be 100% who you know you are. so to everyone out, or still figuring themselves out, I am with you. And I see you!!! And I love you so much. I understand you. And I promise one day you will understand yourself too.

i’ve been living with one major rule throughout every day lately. to take life one day at a time. focus on what’s in front of you. the future isn’t here right now and the past has left. do the best you can in the moment you are in, constantly, and you will arrive at your future without even realizing it, with a past you’re proud to look back at. one day at a time. you can do this.

about as real as it gets. taken on the kitchen floor. depression + isolation is not a great combo on my end. i’ve felt very unproductive, unmotivated, and just sad. but i recognize my bad days as an opportunity to appreciate the good ones even more. i hope you guys are staying safe and staying sane. it affects everyone is their own unique way, and that’s perfectly fine. check in on loved ones. and don’t be afraid to ask for support. love you guys
