Thank you! And, you know, I thought of you many times when I wrote this, and I know how similar we in this way. I thought a lot about your word for the coming year; to DARE, and I think it’s one of the most powerful things we can do. Be ALL that you are and stop apologizing for it. In the end, who cares? If they love you, they will be there regardless. If they turn away, then they probably weren’t right for you anyway.
I shared my Medium handle with both my mother and sister this Christmas and they support me. I told them that if it’s more than they want to know about me, then stop reading—but I will keep writing and I won’t censor myself for their comfort.
I told them both that if the opportunity presents itself, I would take side work as a pro-domme and my sister thought it was totally badass and told me about her sex-toy collection, handcuffs, and blindfolds! (My mom is still a bit skeptical ha)
You are such a beautiful soul and it shines clearly through your work. I feel like I know you, and to me you are Yael, and I don’t care about the rest. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE you too! ❤
