It’s funny how when you’re going through shit, you tend to think you’re completely alone.
It’s pretty easy to slip into a spiral of depression and self pity when you feel like you’re the only person whose entire world is caving in on them. Not a good situation for anyone.
One of the best things about living amongst all of this technology is that it’s really easy to find other people in the same boat as you. In my case, it was as simple as googling “married to a man but attracted to women” to see just how many other women were going through the same thing.
But reading about other people in similar situations, though comforting, is not the same as having a real face-to-face connection with someone and sharing a moment of mutual understanding and acceptance. I had an moment like that last year. It was so inspiring that I wrote about it for Kimberly McLeod’s amazing website Elixher. I won’t inundate you with the details here cuz, for real, it’s kind of a long story, plus you can just pop over to Elixher.com to read it and lots of other great content while you’re there. It’s the best kind of reminder that we’re not alone in this.
