This wasn’t a choice between you and Jacob. It was between ‘who I should be’ and ‘who I am’. I’ve always felt out of step. Like literally stumbling through my life. I’ve never felt normal, because I’m not normal… and I don’t want to be. I’ve had to face death and loss and pain in your world, but I’ve also never felt stronger, like more real, more myself, because it’s my world too. It’s where I belong.
