My story would have had some value had the situation been different in my country.

Yeah, I grew up in one of the more conservative parts of a conservative country.

I went through hell during puberty and after trying to understand who I was and all. I finally came to accept myself. I do not believe I have any reason to be afraid.

Two years now that the war has been raging in Syria. If I feared one part before, now I have 5 parts to be very afraid of.

I believed that I would triumph over my social surroundings and gain acceptance. I have. I hate that now I have to start all over again. I do not think I have it in me this time.
