I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

Facts About Me: Regrets

My amazing FB-friend Ben asked on his page once; what is it that you wished you HAD done that you didn't? What do you regret NOT doing?

The question was an amazing moment of self-discovery for me. It made me think about things that I hadn't thought about of a while.

Me? I wish I'd been more outgoing. I've always been an introvert, despite everyone claiming I was the glue that held my group of friends together all throughout school. I never knew that was who I was, that they thought *I* was the confident, crazy, unpredictable one. I wish I'd known that was who I used to be, so that I could have enjoyed it and properly experienced it, instead of always wishing I was the other person in our group - the one with all the attention and the boyfriends, the good looks, the popularity. I wish I had been more confident in myself and hadn't been so scared to let myself be the centre of attention. I was about 25 before I really looked at myself and turned into who I am, the one who can say "I have zero f*cks to give for what anyone thinks about me", "I am who I am and I love me". I wish I could have been that person before the cancer, before I lost my mobility and my social life. Now, I make the best of what I've got in case I lose it, and I am better for the change, but I'd still like to not be so afraid of putting myself out there and saying "here I am!"
