I recently went through and read some of my past journal entries on this site, and all I can say is...wow.
I like to think I've grown a lot as a person since those entries were written, and that I still have a lot of growing to do. I want to apologize to anyone who ever read my journals back then, and I want to assure you that those problematic views I held have changed drastically. I'm still not a perfect human being by any measure, but everyday I try to work on growing more empathy, understanding, and acceptance.
I'm going to leave them up instead of deleting them to serve as a reminder for myself of who I was, and how I've changed. All I can do is apologize for my past actions and actively work towards not repeating the same mistakes.
This will be my last journal entry on Deviantart for this account.
If you've stuck around throughout the years then thank you.
