So, I'm generally a closed off person. Even with my best friends and family, I keep an arms length from them when it comes to honesty about moods and intimacy and anything remotely related to..you know. You know?
The tipping point was a few days ago when I found myself outwardly laughing (inwardly cringing and outraged) at my best friend's rape joke, just because I felt like fitting in with everyone else who was laughing. So that sucked and I realized I never wanted to talk about such topics with my friends ever, and that sucked too.
Now I'm here..hoping to be honest with strangers instead, and hoping to..I guess..get things sorted out mentally and emotionally.
So, hi, my name is Claire, and it's nice to meet you.
