I have been dreading this day since the time I realized who I was. The silent cry for help in the middle of the night, the daydreaming about my future.
At first, my friends and family were oblivious to my behaviour because I am always up to weird shit. But then they smelled something fishy.
My parents started interrogating me, asking, “Why do you eat so many salads now? Boyfriend mila kya?” Or my sister saying, ” You’re eating Quinoa? What’s that? Laapsi chaawal bol, Laapsi!”
The sirens went off even louder when I ordered myself a fedora hat online. The time that I mentioned about attending this Scandinavian’s concert to my best friends, they threw some major shade. Right in my face.
That is when I started getting worried.
I never thought that this would be hard because I just want to be who I am.
