Mentor: an experienced and trusted advisor.
Many people in my life fall into such a category.
Profoundly, the person to rise above the tide of heroes in my life is my sibling.
My twin to be exact.
Her name is beautiful and I love him.
Their open mind has helped me to thrive and accept all, regardless of circumstance or identity.
Gender has become big in both of our lives.
They've helped me to understand myself and my world better.
For that, I am grateful.
For them, I am blessed.
Through persecution, we have survived.
We pull each other out of the muck and continue on our paths to becoming better people.
Thank you, jumeau/jumelle, my twin.
