Look: the right people will get it. The right people will see you and appreciate you for the person that you are. The right people won’t require you to dilute, censor, or edit yourself in order to be worthy of their time and affection. You don’t need to waste your time on people who are committed to misunderstanding you.
You’ve got to have someone who loves your body. Who doesn’t define you, but sees you. Who loves what he sees. Who you don’t have to struggle to be good enough for. “He loves me for who I am” — a cliche, but one of the most fucking powerful cliches in the history of all cliches.
