Today I have a very personal post for all of you. It’s something very difficult to talk about for me, but I want to be open and fight the stigma around depression and other mental health issues, and hopefully help someone that needs to know they’re not alone.
So today, I’m going to talk to you about depression.
I know it’s been a while since you heard from me. I’ve been rubbish at blogging and honestly I feel a little guilty about it. Even though I have a good reason for it, I still feel like I’m failing you all. So I’m going to try and do better despite everything life is throwing at me because you are important to me. And this blog is as well. I’ll get into more detail about my absence in a later post, but for now, I wanted to celebrate Ace Week with you!
Gender used to be, at least for me, a very simple and straightforward thing. There were boys and there were girls, and I was the latter. But just like sexuality, gender, as it turns out, is a very broad spectrum that isn’t as simple as two options. There’s stuff in between. And it’s that stuff that has confused me for many, many years. But I never really let myself think about it because I was raised to believe there was nothing more than simply boy and girl. I was in relationships where I was forced into a stereotypical feminine role. So that became my reality. But as it turns out, it’s actually not. And just like my sexuality, I’m figuring it out while I go.
