Happy Holidays! I’m glad you are here reading this message from me. You are valuable because you are alive.
I am the mom of a gay daughter and have seen how very isolating and hard it can be for those who have parents and family who don’t understand. I’ve stepped up to offer to be your Holiday Mom because I care that all LGBTQ people experience joy.
I know that not all people who come out are accepted by all family members. All too often, there is a lot of judgment. I’m sorry. I’m sorry if you have experienced this and I’m sorry if your family doesn’t understand or accept you.
I hope you will take some comfort in knowing that there are many, many of us moms out here who are thinking of you and other people in the LGBTQ community who are not being accepted by your parents or other family. I hope that you’ll have a happier holiday season knowing that you are accepted in our hearts.
I’ll be thinking of you throughout this season and hoping that you choose joy. For living a joyful amazing life is the best way to reclaim our power from those who judge us or don’t understand us. I hope you’ll choose joy in each moment. And in the moments when it might feel impossible to feel joy, I hope you’ll remember that I am thinking of you and accepting you as you are. And in that, I hope you’ll find hope that one day you’re love for yourself will help lift you up and give you joy.
You are worthy. Your joy, hope, and self-love are the best antidote to all the negativity you may have experienced. As your “Holiday Mom,” I wish you joy and love in your heart and a deep belief that you are worthy of love.
Happy Holidays! Virtual hugs to you from me,
Your Holiday Mom, Becky
