Despite our differences, I do not consider myself to be the better person. In fact, I can say with sincerity that I am nothing but proud of her for what she did. How she was suffocating, living in the wrong skin, and found the courage within herself to shed it.

Discovering me. 

I am nothing but eternally grateful to her for that.


A to Z day eleven.
