You’re sitting on the roof, lost in the sky. This is your secret getaway on nights you can’t sleep. You live for these quiet moments, surrounded by familiar patterns in the stars.
You reflect on how far you’ve come, in becoming more confident in showing who you are. You’ve been trying out new clothes, new accessories, new ways of expressing yourself. Before, you’ve felt like you’ve been holding your breath underwater, scared of disturbing the way things are. But slowly, it’s as if you emerged from the water, towards all that awaits you.
You feel something inside you change, like you’ve discovered something you can’t quite put a name to. It’s valid to be a little scared, being out in the open. But you’re not submerged anymore, your breaths are even, and you’re still afloat.
