the ring finger is a symbol of love and marriage. it is usually kept empty until a ring is placed there by a partner to show a bond and everlasting love. this is why I chose this finger to place the word “mine” 5 months ago today. to show this bond and everlasting love I share with myself. I am my own lover first. my own partner first. I am my own first. I am mine. and I am in love.
Remember this, ladies. Never settle. You will always have yourself to fall back on.

He still hadn’t come out to his family and a lot of his friends. We were on one of our ‘little breaks’ when he died suddenly from a seizure. And nobody in his family or circle knew I existed. It took me four months to find out that he died. I thought he’d just decided never to talk to me again. His family never found out about me. Or him, for that matter."
