I write to let out all the things that I cannot say in fear that I will get judged. I write to calm my nerves and to let myself know that I can’t give up. I write for myself and the people like me who hide off in the shadows, thinking if we were to come out that it’d just get a lot darker. I write to shine a little light into the shadows of this world. To show that through all the hurt I can still be a happy girl.
