I came out on Thanksgiving, and I feel blessed.

Dear friend,

I know we all were taught the values surrounding Thanksgiving: kindness, family, friendship, and of course thankfulness. This holiday holds a special space in my heart as I feel the need to slow down and search for each of those blessings life has graciously provided.

I came out to my entire family and friends on Thanksgiving Day just after my 24th birthday. I cried with gratitude that day and I couldn’t be more appreciative of the people in my life who unconditionally accepted me in theirs.

In our community, I recognize that acceptance can be difficult to come by and this time of year is challenging to some. With the ongoing pandemic, our isolated routines impose further detriment to our mental health. I know what it is like to suffer and feel alone, but if I may:

Family is what you create.

Give thanks to those who love you for you. Most of all, thank yourself for being strong and embracing who you are. You are never alone.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Love Every Day
