Hi, Luna! Other people are welcome to answer this. I just thought Luna might be able to help me. So, I have this thing. Since 4th Grade, when people started having crushes, I have had “crushes” too. But now, looking back on that, it was all probably just me trying to fit in. Whenever anybody tells me about their crush, or anything like that, and ask me for help, I try to help them if they are arguing by saying “think of something that makes you happy”. They say, “you don’t understand. He/she makes me happy.” I thought I had crushes before, but they were really just boys I thought were cute. I’ve never had real feelings like that for anyone before. Every once in a while, I’ll go through some phase of thinking a girl is cute, but then I’ll just convince myself that since a lot of my friends are LGBT, I am trying to be, too. And it’s true, I don’t like them. I just admire how they are prettier/smarter/more athletic than me. I wish I could feel like that for someone, and I know I’m young, but I want somebody to hold onto. When one of my friends announced her feelings to her crush, they got so close and she was so happy. I wish something could make me happy besides being a furry, because there are so many complicated secrets and misconceptions and lies and half-truths with that that make my head spin. At the end of the day, I’m just the furry girl who loves stuffed animals, books, and can never focus in class. How do I get over the feelings that I could never love somebody and even if by some wild chance I could, they could never love me back. That i’ll never have anyone to hold onto but y’all, and y’all are just names on a screen. That being a furry is something I need to keep secret, and that I need to change who I am to be accepted. I also need to stop treating my stuffed animals like living things... but that’s a different story.
