But life and love and healthy relationships are all about making conscious choices to do what's best for everyone involved.
One of the reasons my wedding gets me so emotional is that—if I'm honest with myself—I was never completely convinced that I'd get married
The faith and the love she showed me made me believe that I was worth loving in a way I had never experienced before.
That's true. America has always been fucked up. I don't know why my expectations were elsewhere—oh, wait, I was sold a lie b/c I'm white
It made me worry that b/c we didn't fit the status quo or check off all the boxes of compatibility, we wouldn't make it together.
