  • Feels like we're still trying to get over the fear of being too weird by accepting ourselves. It's an ongoing problem that's gotten in the way of being comfortable with who we are, and it's something to work on. Still, we've made progress over time! We'll get there one day.

    @confusedghost agreed that it is worth it based on the progress we've made thus far.
    Our issue is less one of accepting ourselves and more accepting that we don't control the judgement of others. We've had a horrible fear of judgement for as long as we can remember and it's been incredibly hard to push through that.

    I struggle with some similar feelings. I tend to reject myself because of how I think others will judge me. I'm learning to accept that I can't control the judgement of others, and that it isn't an obligation of mine to be well percieved. I still recognize that sometimes it is better to not share to preserve my relationships when it comes to the "weirder" things (one example: kin).

    @confusedghost Exactly- you put it beautifully. It's tricky to find the line of when to and when not to disclose though. Sometimes we think someone is safe and they're decidedly not, sometimes it's the other way around.
