Stop being weird. Be normal. Don’t be bad. Be good. Fit in. Do what’s right. But I’m tired. And all of these weird versions of me feel like home, even though it’s a different kind of home. Somehow, here; I feel safe and good and right and normal.

I fortify myself with grit and conviction and take another deep breath. I look up at the ceiling and let one lonely tear fall. I make an agreement with myself that it will be my only tear tonight. I gently pat my cheek dry, take one more look at myself in the mirror and this time the woman I see looking back is a fighter. I’m staring at her. I can see that she’s tough. She knows she can do this. She believes in her strength. She believes in herself.
