Myself, friends and family

· LGBTQ+ · StoriesLeave a Comment

I have had quite a bit of experiences in my life…I have lost and I have gained. I have lost relationships/friendships and I have lost family. For the longest time I thought that I was a failure as a human being, I would beat myself up over it. However, in due time I have come to gain even better relationships/friendships and family. I am going to be honest it is something that I still struggle and I think of my past often, but each day I work on it and get better with it. I try my best to do and be better than I was the day before.

Today, I have wonderful friends whom I call family and I have a beautiful wife who she and her family treat me like I have always been one of their own.

So, firstly, I am proud of who I am today. I am proud of my strength, my courage, my ability to overcome so much and my urge to want to be better.

Secondly, I am also proud of my wife because she has had to overcome death in her family, still lives everyday to the fullest, always is kind and tries to have a positive mindset during trying times. I am truly thankful to have her in my life as also my best friend who loves me unconditionally. I didn’t know what true love was until I met her.

Finally, I am proud of my friends and family that have been in my life and/or have recently met for being wonderful human beings and for being unconditionally loving, funny and kind.
Therefore, overall, I am proud of myself, friends and family for being perfectly imperfect and for just being us.
