“Sometimes, you find the right person at the wrong time. Sometimes it’s the wrong person at the right time. But when you find the right person, at the right time, in the right situation, it’s because you’re meant to be together. Fate has grabbed both of your hands. Don’t let go.
Coming from a place where I was living in an unhealthy relationship I found myself afraid, broken and confused. Coming from a relationship where abuse was so frequent and mistaking that for a healthy thing I ended up losing myself completely. Searching for a healthy community I was writing half a story that was made up of loneliness and hurt. I had decided to look for a loving accepting community where I could be me, find me and figure out who I wanted to be. Finding OH was one of the best decisions I made. It has shown me that the community is not so scary. It’s brought me more friends and something even more amazing, a family. But along the way the universe surprised me and brought me something I did not think I would ever find or was even looking for.
It brought me Madi. Joining OH I did not think I would find the one person I was always looking for. The person that could make me smile on bad days, laugh on sad days and make everything just make sense. Madison, Mads, Madi or Mad-Dog. She’s the best human in all the best ways and everyday I’m discovering more of her. She’s honest, compassionate, kind, and funny goofy and keeps an amazingly open-mind. She’s the hardest worker I know filled with love in her heart and power in her presence . She is the definition of a good human always opening her heart to anyone she meets leaving me so grateful to have met her. This story is made of distance which is tons of texting, face-time calls and me constantly losing at I-message games, but it’s the best. OH gave me a space to be open and to be me and gave me an amazing human named Madi who understands me.
