living in the shadows

I feel like that’s where I am these days. No one sees me. No one knows I’m here.

And it’s not cool, like I’m Jason Bourne or someone like that.

It’s infuriating not to be seen by anyone.

And I say that as a man of privilege – a white, straight guy. I can only imagine how much worse that is the second you add a socially discriminated-against trait to the mix.

Life is cruel to us all, without notions of equality.
