You are amazing! I am thrilled, and so proud of you. I know you will do amazing things in your lifetime. I plan to follow your accomplishments and successes with great eagerness and support you anyway I can. You feel like one of my very own.
Jenna, I am honored you can confide in me about your personal life, I treasure you.
I will be here to sing your praises, be an ear for you to vent to or bounce ideas off of no matter what. You are you. Jenna. Make no apologies. Make no excuses. You are perfect, wonderful, smart, brilliant; exactly as you stand.. ..being gay does not make the person. I know people you will meet will place the labels and the stumbling blocks just because of that. Always remember those are people who live in ignorance and fear. Try to always rejoice in the fabric of YOU...and as long as you can accept and love the individuality you add to the world, no one can bring you down.
I will write more later, have an appointment. I will then give you the low down on me...
Lots of love and respect,
That was the email I got from my sixth grade teacher today. I needed this. I needed to hear this SO badly. Just knowing that someone, an adult, who I admire and respect so much thinks so highly of me and is fully accepting of my sexuality...I needed this. When I first read this I cried because nobody's given me such kind words before.
I feel amazing. I feel so much better.
