Thank you for writing this! Definitely helps others in a similar situation feel some relief. Wish I could say that experiencing people that either embrace you (and what you represent) or the opposite, gets easier as time goes on. It still hurts when shunned, stonewalled, etc. But when you’re able to identify that possibly what you represent scares someone or makes them wish for what their lives could be, hopefully the “sting” lessens. Super valuable post. Thank you again for being willing to share about.
