My story

by Valerie

August 9, 2019

I was 21 and in the middle of finals in college, about to start university. I’d JUST gotten back together with my on/off boyfriend who was never end game. It never felt like an option for me, I knew it wasn’t right. I was one of the fortunate ones in that my partner, family and friends all supported my decision. I was a little sad, but mostly relieved. I ended up quitting my degree and my boyfriend, moving across the country and starting a new life. I can’t even imagine where I’d be had I not had the choice I did. One day I’d love to have kids, but that time will come when I decide, not the government. Sending so much love and positivity to all the others who don’t have it as easy as I did. You’re stronger than you think.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
