Before I was comfortable leaving the house, I always thought of Halloween as the perfect excuse to dress up and hit the town. I thought that if anyone saw me they would just think that I was in a costume.
But as I’ve gotten more confident with being who I am and more comfortable with going out, I have developed a complicated relationship with Halloween. I don’t feel I need Halloween to dress up and go out. In fact, I don’t like being Hannah on Halloween. I am not a costume.
But I also understand that for many of us, this is the perfect time to finally go out as who we are.
What do you think about Halloween?
