Notes from Cole

Yeah, I'm a bit late to the party. I had something nice written out but it got deleted so here goes. Big shock, this month after TiP has been really hard. It's hard transitioning out of being out. Those three weeks I spent as Cole were the best of my life. But coming home, back to "daughter" and the insistence on me getting into makeup and dresses, it's been really really hard. Home is just so different and it's difficult, you know, because it isn't really home anymore, because home is TiP and with you guys and i know you all read the group chat so most of you probably know I'm not doing so great mentally. And it's midnight so I shouldn't even be awake but I'm crying because TiPression is just now hitting me and I just want to be with you guys again. Mom and Dad are so frustrating because they pretend to be so loving and accepting but then I hear them say crap like "no son of mine will be in ballet" and they spit that last word like it's a curse and I just end up further in the closet because what will happen to me doing the stuff I love, like dance, if I do come out? And Dad in particular is so adamant about how it's wrong to be LGBTQ and every days another battle because I can feel his judgement and it's like a thick blanket and I hate it. I can feel his disapproval and what's almost hatred. It's so close. And it's worse, it's thicker, on my grandmother, on my cousin, on one of my oldest friends. It is hatred. I just wanna come home but home is seven hours and eleven months away so for now I'll just clutch the little strings or happiness I have, even if they're fraying and far between. I came out to my friend the other day, the day before they moved, and the last thing they said was "bye, Cole" and those words tasted like sugar. I'm not completely alone here but sometimes it feels like that. Like its me against the world. And guys, you guys are so wonderfully kind and sweet and accepting and you gave me a home, even if it was only for three weeks. I can still feel your hugs and I just miss you so so so much. You help me remember I'm not alone, that I have friends and it's not all hopeless. You have helped me see a different, better world and I know this was too rambly and not like every one else's but I needed to say this. I needed to remind myself you are real and you are out there and one day well all be together again and then I'll be Cole again. It's just a matter of time. It's just a matter of time. I've just got to hold out until I can find home. I love you all. I'll never forget any of you. Please don't forget me. 10 months, 3 weeks, 2 days until I'm home. Thank you - Cole
