I cry a lot. No seriously, like at least once a week. Sounds depressing, right? Lol actually, not at all. I’m a firm believer that crying does not always equal sadness. To me, crying can be an expression of many things. Happiness, sadness, stress, anxiety, joy, love, fear and a combination of lots of those things. When I cry it’s because I want to.

Super Honest Time ❤️: Coming out as bisexual last year has only left me more confused. I asked myself, “why am I this way?” and, “is the reason ok?” My reason is this: I’ve undergone a lot of trauma in my life.
