    Well hello everyone! My name is Bodhi and I am new here. I have recently gone through a LOT of life changes and one of those is coming out to some people that I know. I was raised in a VERY strictly Baptist household and therefore I am still not out to a lot of people. At one point I came out to my mother and that went about as well as you think that might have. That led to a lifetime of hiding and doing things to please her, but that is a post for a different time. I am looking to make friends as I have recently been advised to do so by my therapist. She suggested I do so online first because I have incredibly horrible social anxiety so here I am! Well that is about all I am going to divulge at the moment, I hope this finds you all very well and I hope that you all have a very good day!
