It's the 21st century. You are free to do things that were illegal just 17 years ago. You can even marry someone who's of the same sex as you if you choose, how liberating is that! This is a time to live in your truth and speak it without remorse.

I have to figure out how to stand in the median when it comes to love. I have to learn to accept that people cannot always live up to my expectations and won't, and that should be okay.

"You gonna wear heels?" she shouted from beside the stereo in the back of the darkened studio. Her brown eyes locked into mine in the mirror. Pausing to think, I pursed my lips together.

Okay, so I will admit something terrible here. I'm not a fan of Taylor Swift, rather I wasn't. For years I mocked her openly on Twitter, said the snarkiest things about her lyrics. And it always ended with something along the lines of, "Why is she being so terrible?"
