And this is why it’s taken me so long to write. Because writing that sentence, putting that darkness within you onto the page for all to see? That’s hard. But it’s real and it’s my truth. And chances are, it’s someone else’s truth too, someone who might also be too scared to admit it out loud.
Social City Networking got the chance to join the pre-opening party for the new storefront space in Yaletown last Wednesday night.
