Well, this will be my last post for Pride Month. Thank you for being a part of the journey and I hope that the past few posts have been encouraging. I’m going to attempt to end this series on a positive note. I started trying to tweet about this but then realized I needed to say more.
If there’s one thing we can use more of in this world, it’s good things and good people. Sometimes I don’t think I deserve goodness. Probably due to being told I am not good (there is none good, etc.).
Lately I’ve been overwhelmed with all the bad things that have happened to me but also overwhelmed with all the GOOD THINGS. I don’t even know what to do. It’s so much and it’s all so good. No one ever tells you what to do with the good things.
I’m the kind of person that’s not good at expressing feelings verbally. I can write about feelings all day long but it’s uncomfortable. I’m much better at telling you what I’m thinking than what I’m feeling.
So I’m just gonna say…let yourself have those good moments and good feelings for people and things. Let yourself feel. ENJOY AND CHERISH THE GOOD.
I often don’t even think I deserve good relationships (in romantic ways or otherwise). I don’t know how to approach crushes because I don’t think I deserve to be happy. If you’re in the same place…Guess what? We do deserve good things. Maybe if I repeat it enough times I’ll believe it.
We’re queer. We’re here. We can do good, be good, and receive good. Feelings are messy but don’t forget to let yourself feel.
We’ve been abused, told we deserve hell, that we don’t deserve love. Let me tell you:
We deserve love, we deserve a world that lets us live in safety. We deserve kindness and nothing less. Nothing. Less.
You deserve love and you deserve good.
Not all of us love the same way. But take chances and reach out for good things and good people in your life. Surround yourself with goodness and kindness. You are all amazing and beautiful and anyone who says you’re not, can honestly fuck off.
You deserve love. You deserve good. We all deserve this.
Enjoy and cherish the good.
