As much as this disgusts me to the core of my being, it is the one thing that value from my experience. i.e. the tainted and toxic silver thread in the lining of shit.
I believe 100% every time.
The thing that hurts so very much with me being an empathic person is that my shell, my gender, my existence in front of a woman.
Will make her doubt 99.999% my intentions
I will fight for that 0.001%, and if a bridge can't be built, I will stand by for her and will still believe.
