Just figuring out what to do with this thing that I learned about myself, and other people. How to do things when your entire world had shifted ganern.

I want to think that if anyone has found the way I work helpful to them, it’s because of that core trust. For several months, I surrounded myself with people who were the same way. I felt less alone, and also less burdened with the things I thought I was fighting alone for.

Medyo sanay tayo sa struggle of knocking on closed doors and having to convince people that we are worthy so yes it was a beautiful thing to experience a simple thing like standing on a crowded street and knowing that the people next to you don’t mean you harm.

Of course as these apps and their cursed trolls like to remind us, a bunch of people do mean to harm others—more than ever. I’m going to accept that as them being terrible, but I still saw a beautiful thing. I was capable of it, and so many others were too. Hay naku, hugs to us.
