so never be ashamed

by kateurquhart

(last night I came out)

(it wasn’t a big or significant announcement, and it wasn’t scary, or beautiful, or dramatic)

(it was a simple conversation with one other person (my drunk cousin))

(and despite being drunk, he spoke words to me that I will always remember)

(he said) I respect you, so never be ashamed

you are a good person

you are smart and you are kind and funny, so never be ashamed

and besides, people don’t get to decide who you are

only you can choose your identity, so never be ashamed

don’t let the haters get you down

if people don’t accept the real you then they can get stuffed – it’s their problem, not yours, so never be ashamed

and be proud of yourself, because I sure as heck am proud of you

@kateurquhart You are so welcome! People spend so much time complementing others for who they pretend to be with all of these filters and photoshopping, but no one wants to appreciate a person for who they are without hiding behind some fake persona. Much love always! ❤️

Great story! And honestly drunk people are the best people to talk to! Most people are really honest when they have consumed a few drinks. But seriously, congratulations to you for telling someone and sharing with the Commaful Community! We accept you and love you the same. You are an extremely talented and gifted person. Never let anyone take your gifts from you because they don't agree with your lifestyle. I could go on, lol but congratulations again on a lovely touching piece! ❤️

This is an uplifting story of incredible beauty. There was a veritable rainbow of emotion set off in at least, this reader. I am 72. I never thought I would live to see the events of today. I have been around LGBTQ people since I was a toddler. I don't know how to hate them. One was a big brother and his lover. They were together over 50 years. Love is love. Your courage is noted. You are not alone. Great post!!!!
