A couple of years ago, before we were "out" we had a handful of friends who knew, they kept our secrets, and gave us a safe place to be exactly who we are. Nothing changed after we came out.... we are still loved and accepted exactly the way we are. These are the kind of friends who love you as you grow, evolve, and maybe become different people entirely. I'm so thankful for all of you! The friends who are not only there when you're down.... but they clap and celebrate when you win too!! They are the family we choose. Make sure your close circle is filled with those kind of friends. Two of them are worth more than a thousand others.
