Shania

you kiss her for the first time, do not write it in our diary

To my younger self,

Things I wish someone told you.

When you are 6 years old and you begin to think your best friend has really pretty lips, do not tell your pastor. Do not allow him to bleach the rainbow from your heart.

When you are 10 and you kiss her for the first time, do not write it in our diary. When your father finds it he is going to beat you senseless.

A man cannot teach you how to be a woman, do not search for affirmations in the toughness of his hands. This is not you, you will regret allowing him to enter you. Go home

Things get better. They get bad but they get better. Kiss Akela longer. Do not allow your parents to scare oh away from her, this will be your biggest mistake.

P.s, we turn out super gay in the end. I love you, be kinder to our body, stop cutting it everywhere, you were born to love the women you love.

-sincerely, Shania
