I became a smaller version of myself to please. My light did not shine as bright because I was a threat to masculinity. I was shrinking for an ego. I wasn’t respected, appreciated, or shown the love I deserved.
And now? Now, I am completely me again. I am whole. Nothing and no one defines me. My life is mine and it doesn’t need to be shared or paraded around to anyone. I love the life I’m living and I am so happy.
Everything happens for a reason; thank God for that.
