Being newly out......really scary....at least it was for me...I was only 15.
But I can say....my biggest problem was trusting ppl too much. I was taught that u should trust ppl till they give you a reason not to.
Well, I have found in my own experience that the opposite is true. The kind of innocence dubs have is very vunerable to those in the "world".
Just trust your gut, if you feel someone or something isnt right, just like u felt about the dubs, go with it. Your gut is your compass for a while, learn to trust it and listen to it.
At times you may feel like you're overreacting, but better safe then sorry right?
Its a big change nd it takes time to adjust. Just give yourself the time to adjust.
We have been fed that anyone from the "world" is evil....well, thats true, but the dubs are just as evil. Kinda have to weigh it out....ya know?
There are really...REALLY good ppl out here...in the "world"......kinda of a trial and error.
But the great thing is....you get to choose, and learn, noone else tells you what to do or how to feel, or what the future holds. That my friend is amazing, sometimes it sucks, not gonna lie, but....the difference is.....you finally get to choose.
No matter what.......fending off the guilt, is a really nice thing to get rid of.
Are you gonna make all the right choices????? Nope...but......at least you can make the choices.
Nice to be able to get that kind of power back. Scary??? Hell ya....but you will get used to it.
Even if its a small thing to get you started.....seeing a Harry Potter movie, or going to a club and being invisible....just to watch everyone around you and laugh and the crazyness around you....at least you did it, and saw it.
The most amazing thing for me...........chased my dream. I wanted to go to school to be an automotive machanic...........and I DID IT!!!
I am a 34 yr old women......5ft 0in tall...woman......but I graduated and I DID IT!!!
I can do all I can...worked in a dealership a week out of school....had a 3.71 GPA when I graduated.
The world is yours...........go to school....see a movie....whatever it is......its now yours.
