Facing the mirror
My first conscious thought of the possibility that I could be attracted to other girls entered my head when I was thirteen. It was a fleeting thought because I immediately suppressed it. I was unable to deal with the possibility that I may have feelings that I have only ever heard of as disgusting and unnatural at both church and at home, and I simply denied it. I continued to deny it for ten years. Throughout my teens I lived in hope that my lack of attraction to guys was because I had yet to meet the right one.
