Love isn’t so effortless, not to me.
My theme for 2016, as I’ve stated numerous times, has been honesty.
“If I wasn’t afraid, I would put my heart on the line.”
Marriage as a business deal. While most of the class struggled to dissociate the idea of marriage without romance attached, it immediately clicked with me.
The stigma of genital herpes overshadowed pieces of myself that I vowed I’d never lose sight of—my confidence, my weirdness, my true sense of self.
With passion, there comes risk.
It has taken me a significant amount of time to be herpetic and confident; I know not everyone is as equipped to handle this combination as I am—which is part of the reason I put myself in the public eye.
