You get all nervous. You summon all your courage. It takes a nhuge effort to open and step through the front door. There you are, out in the wild. The cold air against your legs. You have never been so scared yet so exited…. You start to walk. Every step a step further away from the sanctuary of home. Every step a step closer to being found out, laughed at, or having abuse thrown at you……. Nothing happens. People just get on with their lives. Even if people notice you, they don’t say anything.
Welcome to the big outdoors. It’s nowhere near as scary as you think it will be.
I used to go to parks and quiet paths late at night. These days I head into shopping areas, popular public places, shops, pubs…. No one comments.
Be proud. Hold your head high and let the world meet Katie!
