So, in yesterday's Musical Monday / Weekend Update post, I had said that I had gotten some information from my cousin on Sunday and that I was saving it for today to talk about. So, that's what I'm gonna do. I got a text from Trouble to see if I had seen my cousin's Facebook post. I hadn't so I went on over to see what the deal was to see this:
So this is a bit of a long post, and for once it's not about a crazy customer I had, but it's still very important to me. In fact, I can feel my heart beating faster as I'm typing this. But today is somewhat of a holiday and I know I would be upset with myself if I didn't take advantage of it. Today is National Coming Out Day and I would like to take this opportunity to officially say that I am gay. This has been a major source of depression and poor self-esteem my whole life, but it's 2015, times have definitely changed, and I'm definitely ready to start living a life where I am comfortable with who I am. A lot of you already knew this about me, and I cannot thank you enough for your support and discretion. I've made a few amazing friends in the LGBT community who definitely helped me reach this point where I can be comfortable enough to post this on social media. So basically I just want to encourage anyone who may be struggling with their selves to try and be comfortable with you are. If you need support, I'll always be here for you.
To those of you are uncomfortable with this or believe that my lifestyle is immoral or wrong, please feel free to remove me from your friends list. I don't need your hate in my life.
Thanks a ton for reading this. I love you all smile emoticon
Now, if you know me, you know that I'm a supporter of any kind of love but, of course, I was little shocked as I never even thought that about him. Not even once. But I immediately gave him my support & told him that I loved him. A person's sexuality doesn't matter to me, it's a part of who they are but not who they are, if that makes any sense. I talked to him in private message as well to see how he was doing & how conversations went with his parents. His mother & stepdad were as supportive as I knew they would be but his dad, my uncle, I was worried about. He surprised us both & told my cousin that he supported him 100%. My cousin sent me a picture of the text & it sent us both to tears. He's got a great support system around him & no matter what, he'll always be my cousin & I will love him to death.
I posted this for his last birthday.
