Here are some words of wisdom from my favorite cartoon, Steven Universe.
"You're supposed to change! You're never the same, even moment to moment! You're allowed and expected to invent who you are. What an incredible power, the ability to grow up."If you've spent time in a restrictive fundamentalist subculture, remember Rose's words. Your path in life need not be defined by others. You are free to pave your own path in life. You are free to discover for yourself who you really are. The freedom to define ourselves is precious and beautiful.
