Here is all the other wonderful people that now get their chance to tell their story.
I am "[i]n a gay relationship, but I'm unsure of my actual sexuality."
What is it like being you? as a member of the LGBT community or just being you?
"The LGBT community is filled with some of the nicest people I've ever met. You can find a friend for anything in it, whether you wan[t to] fangirl over something or get advice about mental health, someone will be there for you. As far as being not-straight goes, it CAN be hard. Family and friends won't always be accepting and strangers will judge you. But it is so worth it. Being who you really are is SO important, and your sexuality/gender is a huge piece of the puzzle that you are. Personally, I'm not screaming from the rooftops that I find girls attractive, but if someone asks, I will be honest (most of the time. If it seems like coming out will/could be unsafe, I'll just change the subject or answer indirectly; I don't really like to lie). Being in a same sex relationship is new for me, but it's good. I like it. I d[on't know] what to say about it. I don't see it as me, a female, dating another female. I think of it more as, me, a person, dating another person of whom I love very much. Labels can suck. People who judge or enforce labels suck. Just be who you are, with or without labels. Be happy. Take care of your mental and physical health. Take a breather every once and a while. Ask out your crush. Get your heart broken. Laugh with friends. Ask more questions. You are not your label. You are you.
Really, just go and live your life."
I am human and I believe that.
No matter who you are. What you believe. Who you love. You are not alone.

Hello! This is a note to everyone who views my blog. I am currently working to transfer this blog to WordPress. In the process I decided to change the name to "Fading into the Light". This is not sudden. I never meant for "Miracles of Writing" to actually be the name of my blog it just kind of stuck. I don't know when I'll have all the posts moved over to WordPress, but when I do I will inform you guys. This should not be rough transition. Some of my formatting will change, but this will overall insure that my blog can survive. The main reason I'm switching if any of you are wondering is so when I feel it necessary I can easily self host this blog. Thank you all for sticking with me and all of you that have joined on my way! I hope you are just as happy as me for this next step forward!
I've reached out to several members of the LGBT+ community and have collected first person accounts on what it is like to be them. Here are the results:
