“Three months ago: I am very alone, but trying to feel strong. I am adjusting to a new apartment that was empty until two weeks ago. I bought this cheap sexy shirt with my friend, and I photograph myself in it now to see myself as sexy for a few minutes. Another friend gifted me this skin product that makes everything look shiny and glowing. I put it in the right places on my face. I am not secure, but my friends help me feel good about myself. They see who I want to be. I am getting softer. I am learning to love myself more.”
