I read the phrase “That was your truth then. Your truth now can be different” in one of your answers and I really want to honour you by quoting it. Would you be comfortable giving me a name/alias to quote it under?
Wow, this totally made my day! You can quote me as polyadvice.tumblr or as Zinnia. You can link this blog (or my Patreon) if you want, but you totally don’t have to!
It is true! The changing present doesn’t negate the past. Breaking up with someone doesn’t mean you made the wrong choice to date them at the time, or the time you spend together was a waste. Claiming a new identity doesn’t mean previous ones were invalid or untrue. Be gentle with yourself, including your past self. <3
