she/her and they/them
Through different relationships I’ve questioned whether or not I was enough, or wanted as much as I wanted them. Or if I was worthy because of how I looked, having to do with my big nose, my love handles or even my skin riddled with acne scars (all of which I am learning to love). In the recent past I’ve never wanna come off too strong or too disinterested so I stay teetering on the line of ‘is’ or ‘isn’t’ into you as a way to protect myself.
