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
