I should take a moment to say how fortunate I have been to be one of the few that hasn’t had it terrible compared to others who were incredibly bullied and disowned by their families for being gay. Although at first my mom told me it was just a phase and that I’d get over it I didn’t see it as her not wanting me to be gay. I saw it as her not wanting me to have more of a difficult life then I was already having.

I mean I was cutting myself and being picked on for telling a popular girl I was in love with her. But honestly the bullying wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been, especially for a small town. And like they say, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Then when I went on to graduate and then start working at Walmart, people tried to tell me that I wasn’t gay and that I didn’t know who I was. But through hardships and finally finding the back bone to stand up for myself and having finally left that terrible place and start a new life for myself. I know who I am, I know what I am not, I’m not going to let someone define who I am.

So on National Coming Out Day I want to thank everyone that has been there for me and accepted me for me. For those who pushed me harder and those who caught me when I fell. If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t be who I am today and I wouldn’t be able to be me. So if your future kids or grand kids or friends turn out to be gay, show them the support and love they deserve. It isn’t your fault and it isn’t their fault it’s just who they are. Because love is love and everyone deserves love.
