As a writer, my words were failing me. I wanted to communicate the message laid above but as I kept trying to explain myself, my words got more and more fumbled and I sounded ridiculous. I even checked my message with a friend, and her response (though kind and truthful) let me know I was not communicating what I wanted the world to know. To say this out loud has been on my heart for months, so why couldn’t I get it right?
I’m a God-fearing, God-loving, walking-with-Jesus kind of Christian, and Maya Angelo’s words describe perfectly how I feel that my ex is gay, that friends/acquaintances from HS are gay, and that there is an entire population wanting and waiting to feel loved and accepted. And sometimes, someone words something so eloquently, so simply, so perfectly, that expounding on it is unnecessary.
Go be you. God loves you. He made you. Go be you.
