I’ve struggled with finding the balance between being proud of my sexuality and not letting it define who I am. I’ve met people who’ve told me I was too much or not enough. I started meeting people who didn’t accept everything about my personality. They tolerated me as opposed to embracing me as a friend.
I started going to group meetings that were specifically for people of the LGBT community and started understanding I’m not the only one going through problems and there are people that are going through the same problems as I am. I also started channeling my depression/anxiety into my photography.
I started finding people who loved me unconditionally. I started to become my own best friend. Going out alone, meeting different people and focusing on my photography. I had to teach myself that i have every right to exist just as much as anyone else.
I’m a part time student, working towards a degree in digital arts technology. Practicing my photography and finishing a visual story that will be available to view on my instagram: ViewsByThe13thFloor
I would say think of yourself as a piece of art. Art is subjective, someone may think you are only worth 1 look or not worth much but there are people that can find the beauty in everything about you. Flaws and all. Its all about choices and who we choose to surround ourselves with. Positive, supportive and loving friends can really help you get you where you need to be.
