I used to really struggle with seeing everything as black or white, it drove me nuts. That's largely due to how I was raised, everything was always black or white and out of stubbornness, mostly, no one wouldn't ever consider the gray.
That inspired my everything is gray attitude, black and white is boring. Like my family, I can be stubborn. I took refusing to see black and white a step further, its only a white lie, and in turn I made foolish mistakes, knowingly, just to prove who was in control. I had the ability to be heartless, and I refused to see it.
But we can only run so long. It was time to face my truth. Keeping true to myself meant being absolutely truthful with others, and when I first met Kayla I just wasnt ready for her. I could run from that truth or include her in it, I chose to include her. Guess what, she understood with open arms. 6 months later on January 18, 2017 we officially began our journey.
The same understanding she showed me then, she continues to show me today. I can be a handful at times, and she's not afraid to speak her voice. She helps me keep accountable to my standards and catches me when I slack off. I'm very proud of the woman she is today. Shes worked really hard to get here, and I know she doesn't ever plan to stop. Thank you for being there through it all, and being the understanding, loving human God created. I love you pretty lady 😘🤙🏼
