Don’t be afraid. You will make the right choices, and you will make mistakes. You can always begin again when you recognize them. No path is locked in forever. You’re free to take another and explore new ground.
Live lightly. Don’t try to hold on or control so much. It’s just an illusion anyway. Enjoy the moment. Enjoy the game. Forget about the outcome.
Practice radical self-acceptance. Accept who you are at this moment. Accept that you can and will change your internalized biphobia or self-doubt once you decide to accept yourself as you are and connect with others who can support you.
Be vulnerable. It has always been part of my personality to express my intellect and feelings. I express my authentic self and show my humanity and vulnerabilities, regardless of whether other people feel uncomfortable about this part of my personality.
Develop your emotional support system. Having a community of people who truly get me became even more important as the years passed. My need for emotional support and consistent sisterhood has increased. I found out who my true supportive ride-or-die friends are whenever I hit a major life challenge, i.e., giving birth, a death in my family, financial instability, or illness. Some friends will vanish and return when you feel better and others will step up and have your back during the whole tumultuous journey.
