You have seen and you have known what it is to suffer. You have come from a place of fear and despair, where the only understanding found was discovered in being misunderstood. Where you had been told that different was dangerous and expression was wrong. Where you were petrified into being what you were taught you should be. But now you free yourself from the husks of expectation — you begin to see a future and you feel so alive, for the first time, so full of life! You have made yourself known to the universe and the universe has answered you. Or perhaps you just earned it; you deserve it. Because you dared to be different than what you were made to be. Because you take those chances from which others flee. Because you and I both know the only thing more haunting than taking the wrong chance –
I’m so proud of and happy for you.
