For a moment, I let myself feel pride.
Not a perfect introvert or extrovert 100% of the time.
Being queer is being free.
What if I can leave the past on the shore?
Time to examine the habit of self-judgement and move on.
I live an independent life at the cost of ignoring the baggage that comes with it.
Contemplating the ownership of pain.
How fluid is our memory?
“I have a habit of searching for memories in the future.”
I don’t have the kind of life I was ‘expected’ to have. How do I deal with the life I actually have, instead?
2019 could already use some good things.
What do best friends do together?
All my life I’ve tried to be impervious, but I am soft.
Baopu has a long-avoided conversation with mom.
I want to be safe and free.
They want one voice, one wall, but we must remember how to feel.
How do you say what’s unsaid every time you see your family?
“My parents fight so much. And when I spend time with them I become miserable and toxic, just like them!”
Remembering a little bit of love everyday: It’s the only way I can prepare for this journey.
I wish I could come home more, but everything is different now…
