Kayt, thank you for your beautiful authenticity and transparency. I’m saddened to see other men’s comments here trying to evoke shame and judgement, while you only came here to lay yourself bare and ask the question we all want to have answered, “Am I worthy of love and belonging despite my mistakes?” And you are. You are worthy. You’re brave. Keep using your writing gift to shake up others. There will be critics and trolls on your journey… but this world is all the better for having honest, and brave people like yourself in it. We need people just like you.
