An Ode to Lonely Hearts this Holiday Season

To anyone who has been emotionally, physically, or mentally abused by close family.

 

To anyone who cannot come out to their family.

 

To anyone who has lost family support because you stood in your truth.

 

This is for you.

 

You are  precious gem in this often soulless world. You will find a chosen family. You did not betray anyone.

 

You are breaking through generational trauma. You are investing in the future of your family and your own descendents.

 

You will create a home that you love. You will thrive.

 

You deserve to have boundaries. You deserve to be treated with respect. You deserve genuine happiness.

 

You are beautiful. You are worthy. You are loved.
