I find your story inspiring.
In a world of once feeling rather alone in my quest for more knowledge about my body, I am recently overcome with connection, understanding and camaraderie.
I am reminded that there is such beauty and love in the world, and between “almost” just strangers. Because we haven’t met, have we? Never face to face, but on another level it’s like we’ve known each other for quite some time.
It’s something that has instantly connected us.
And once we decide to strip away that caddy competitive nature that we’ve been taught to have as a female, against other females, something quite magical happens.
And if we can go into first meeting one another in a warm, mutual, welcoming place, rather than comparing and nitpicking each other to pieces, something quite magical happens.
And oh how wonderful it is to meet someone without judgement. Without a care of whether they are judging you for how your outfit or hair looks that day, or how cool your job sounds, and to just meet as two humans. Two females. To find connection through that.
So, please, keep sending me your stories, your thoughts, and your ideas. It enriches my days to connect with you, read your words and share a few of my own back with you. To find that I can relate to other girls across borders, languages and ages.
It is a humbling reality I find myself in. And I find myself not feeling so alone anymore.
