Devon, I want to reiterate everything Jim said. I don’t want to presume either, but I can’t help but say, you are lovely in all your masculinity. Men can be and are lovely. I’ve known Jim for a couple of years now, and I find him to be quite lovely, in every form of the word.
Men can be cuddled, coddled, cared for in sickness and otherwise. Gender shouldn’t matter when it comes to the care, compassion, and love a person receives.
Thank you for sharing this piece of your story. You’re brave and wonderful.
