To My Middle School Best Friends

You must have been a true friend if we stayed friends through the awkward middle school phase.

To My Middle School Best Friends
Tina Freeman

Hey there,

We haven't talked in a while, and that's OK. We were really close in middle school, and we kind of lost our way when we got into high school. At the time, I was heartbroken, but I realized that is how life is. We went our separate ways, and that's fine. You were good for me at the time, and I hope I was good for you, too.

Regardless, I want to say thank you for being there for me through all the awkward times. Thank you for being my friend when I was experimenting with make-up, and when I was going through weird clothing phases. Thank you for all the sleepovers and late-night talks. All of the birthday parties we had were fun, too. Of course we had to go to each others every year, and they were fun.

We were always at each others houses, and your parents basically became my parents. They were always there for me when I needed them, and they took me in as if I were there child, too. I can't even begin to count how many times they fed me or took us out to dinner. Make sure they know how much I appreciate them.

This is going to sound a little creepy, but I see your posts all the time on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. I see the different things you've gone through; the good and the bad. Some of you have lost those close to you, gotten married, had kids, and you've moved on with life. I'm glad you all are doing well. Well, at least appear to be. A few of you know that I still care about you, and hope life really goes well for you. I've talked to a few of you recently and told you I'd be there for you still, but I don't know if it actually stuck. I truly meant it. You were there for me when things were bad, and I want to return the favor. You all are good people and deserve a good life.

I hope you keep track of me, too, and you'd be there for me if I really needed it. Say hi sometime. I miss you all and our awkward phase.

Your old friend,

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
