I could have continued on that unhappy road but i found a person who loves and respects me and has been my best friend since 1986, and my spouse since last year. I love being different and don’t want to be like everyone else. So i am not 100 percent confident talking about being a lesbian with just anyone. She’s found it difficult to reconcile her faith with her sexuality.
In high school and college, i wrote poems about girls and women i had crushes on and can also remember falling in love with my best friend at 14–as much as one can ‘fall in love’ at that age. I feel like a child.
