Welcome to Day 26 of February Photofest 2023, a month long lewd photo event organized by Molly Moore of Molly’s Daily Kiss!
Yesterday was quite possibly one of the most affirming nights I’ve had in a long time. It genuinely could not have come at a better time too. I’ve been struggling really badly with severe insecurities, anxieties, and fears around my relationships, resulting in heavy depression, intermittent isolation, and a general sense of panic and dread. But last night Fenric and I went to celebrate Queer Prairie Kitten‘s birthday with them, and we got to cuddle Persephone, and made out with a few cute queers!
Seriously, it was one of the best social gatherings I’ve been to in nearly a year and it was exactly the queer, neurodivergent, polyam affirming experiences that I have desperately needed. I’ve missed community, even though I’ve been too overwhelmed and a mess to seek it in any capacity lately. So, this was just perfect.
I’m not suddenly “fixed” of course, but I definitely feel more hopeful and less bleak than I have been as of late. This has really gone a long way toward challenging those feelings of being an inadequate, unfulfilling, undesirable and unwanted person that have been plaguing my mind for so long now. I hope to have more nights like these where I can be with awesome people in a safe and less overwhelming space, and to kiss so many cute queers.
Two days ago I was NOT doing okay. Not at all. And, like, I’m still not, but now I know I’ll at least be okay though. And that’s making a pretty big difference for me right now.
