I want to introduce you to a couple of other people who make a huge difference in my life. I thought long and hard on how to do this because I want to protect people’s privacy but they are part of my life and I want to talk about them. Selfish? Maybe.
The things people say to me and the interactions I have with them are part of my story, so I have the right to tell it. I have experience with being outed on the internet before I was ready, so I never want to do that to anyone else. My solution: composites.
It’s also a way to show the many different voices in my head who influence what I do and who I am. It’s shown me that I can categorize those people which is both handy and makes me wonder if i should broaden my horizons.
J Boyfriends past and present. The Voice of Reason. Men whose opinions I respect.
M Besties.Women who legitimately care about my well being.
R My better half. My partner. People I trust. My sisters.
A Counsellor, relative, neighbor, or friend.
Zed. Everyone else.
This is just a fun post. I’m still working on those serious business ones. Let me know what else y’all would like to hear about.
I want to know more about this premature online outing! Who do I go yell at now?
Oh it wasn’t really that big a deal and it was a long time ago, but I haven’t forgotten how it made me feel.
