Caught Between Being Who I Am and Being with the World
💌 Dear Ruksi 💌
I’ve come to a place in my life where I’m truly happy with who I am, who my friends are and the community we’ve been able to create around us. However, often times I feel like I have to hide significant parts of who I am to the rest of the world, like I feel that they won’t be ready for the person I have shaped out to be, because it’s not a way of being that has been encouraged by mainstream society. These days I often find myself wondering if it would be worth mustering up the strength to go forth with fully expressing who I am to everyone I encounter and risk being misunderstood or rejected or if it would be better to limit my interactions as much as possible to the people I know will accept and embrace who I am.
Caught between peacefully being who I am and peacefully being in the world
