I lie hundreds of ways to almost everyone I come into contact with at my job every day. Because I want people to believe I’m the strong, confident girl boss who isn’t secretly hoping she won’t be found out – for using the restroom to cry some days when it all gets too much. Or maybe not quite having it all together.
These looked like women who knew what they wanted. Women who weren’t ashamed of their sexuality. And I wanted to be one of them.
