It’s been a while since I posted anything. In a nutshell, things have become increasingly stressful with no end in sight.
When I began my “advocacy” I had no idea it would lead me to lose so much faith in humanity, including in places where I expected more open minds.
Some of the most kind, genuine people I’ve met have demanded conformity from me without even realizing they were doing so, shaming my differences despite their messages of inclusion and diversity.
I’ve come to to the realization that simply finding “good people” isn’t enough. There are plenty, but the vast majority are either silent or fall into the above category, valuing conformity first.
Apparently I exist outside of most people’s comfort zones.
