High School Prom vs.10 years later at Disneyland after Dreamhack Anaheim.
A lot changes in 10 years, and 2 of the things I'm most proud of are learning to love others without judgement (which is a constant fight and something I strive to be better at daily) and embracing myself and my sexuality (which is still a learning process and required undoing years of mental barriers). I'm in such a solid place right now, Covid-19 has me reevaluating things, and pursuing others, but ultimately I'm very happy with my life.
If I could talk to 2010 high school William I would tell him, "It is more important to be a light than to give into the darkness. Loving, accepting, and standing up for others is the only thing that matters in this life."
