We wasted a good decade torturing ourselves like this. Learning to get inspired by what actually inspires you, motivates you, pulls you... is so much more fulfilling. It can really drain your time and energy checking in on people who only Bring you down. Sometimes it’s good to have a friend as support + accountability. 🙌🙌

🙋♀️😂 we’re pretty sure that we’re Clingons 😭 For us one of the hardest lessons, is just learning how to let go and when to let go. It should be like a master class in high school. Teaching us how to let go respectfully, gracefully, and quickly when we need to. ❤️❤️❤️
🤣🤣 we’re not even going to pretend that we are at this level of growth yet. 😭

Coming out in an unaccepting environment... .
As two gay women from the South, we are very much aware of how daunting it can be to want to come out, but feeling scared to because of the enviornment you’re in. .
You couldn’t control the family, the city, or the beliefs you were born into, but you do get to control how you choose to navigate the waters ahead. .
Both of us are extremely lucky to have been loved and accepted by our families, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t face any road bumps along the way— and the same goes for so many other LGBTQ folks in the South (and millions of other LGBTQ people around the world). .
We are not experts by any means, but our advice is this: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•When you—and only you— are ready to come out, do so with a safe group of friends or family that you trust. Scared to talk to them? Are they the ones who are having a hard time accepting you? Guess what? Family isn’t always defined by blood. You have the right to choose who your family is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •Know that your environment does not define, nor does it validate who you are as a person- in any capacity. Unfortunately, we don’t have the ability to control the circumstances we are born into, but please know (and believe us when we say) that this is NOT the end-all-be-all!!! The people and beliefs you may happen to be surrounded by now, do not accurately reflect the rest of the world’s people and beliefs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •This is temporary. These feelings of fear, confusion, apprehension, anxiety, sadness, etc. There is always, always, always a silver lining. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•We love you. 🖤 .
6 months of praying together every morning. 6 months of funny fights about fans/scrambled eggs/unlocking doors. 6 months of sooo many laughs, tears, couch snugs, episodes of suits, and honey bunches of oats.
I love you so much @gray_gilmore happy half a year g🤗🥰 #myPERSON
The saying is often told, #bloodisthickerthanwater.
But what most people don’t know is, the ACTUAL saying goes, “The blood of war is thicker than the water of the womb.” Which means, who we choose to war with, and stand by when things get hot, is way more important than DNA.
These two... to watch the way they love each other blows my mind.
They chose each other.
Neither had to, but both did. And do. Every. Single. Day. And we couldn’t have, wouldn’t have, planned it better.
Eu quero escrever pra você, é aniversário dela, Eu a amo tanto.. Ela sente sem está perto, podem se passar dias,quando nos vemos somos a mesma coisa.. não tem cobrança, não tem ciúmes, não tem desconfiança.. muito pelo contrário, o que tem é aliança, o que tem é Deus... Você é preciosa na minha vida, a pessoa que sei que posso contar! Minha madrinha, minha irmã! Te amo. Feliz aniversário!! ♥️ #myperson
There’s a saying here in Ireland , Mo Chuisle, meaning my pulse. And boy are you. Thank you for handling my anxiety, weird corks, expectations, and odd personality. How anyone gets through life without a partner like you I will never understand. I love you Mo Chuisle. For 3000 and more. #MoChuisle#mylove#love#fiance#kisses#myperson
