21 November 2016
Exactly one year to the day since I came out.
It’s been a tough year. Some friends left, others stuck by me, and many more were made.
I lost my job 7 months ago and survived rejection after rejection until finally being accepted for a job that’s perfect for me last week. It’s my first day today as well!
There have been times I haven’t had enough money to feed myself. I’ve only just turned the heating on. I thought that soon I would be homeless.
There were times I almost didn’t make it at all but I fought on and survived.
And all of this while trying to adjust to the most life changing event of my time on Earth.
And now today is my anniversary. And today I start my first new job in 10 years. It’s a day of beginnings.
Time to release that pent up energy.
Here’s to another year.
