Coming Out Young

Coming out at the early age of 13 to a conservative Christian family was a lot more difficult than I expected.. Born a female I began telling people how I truly felt when it came to my sexuality.. I was a lesbian and I knew that wasn't going to change despite how many people told me it was "just a phase". Two years later I began realizing I wasn't a girl and started identifying as non-binary. I was surrounded by loving individuals that accepted me, my family was loving despite not accepting how I expressed myself. Over time I began to understand that there are people in this world that will never accept me, but as long as I continue to love myself, as long as i continue to accept myself.. I am free..
