Twitter is full of “gay culture” tweets that can be funny, relatable, or just a little bit sad. They prove that many people in the LGBTQ+ community share similar experiences, whether it’s something they went through as a child or something they still deal with today.

But none are quite as fun, heartbreaking, and in-your-face real as this tweet by Introvert Gay went viral within days.

Oof. It’s a simple message, but it hits hard. It’s no surprise that so many people found the tweet incredibly relatable, and maybe even made them a little emotional.

LGBTQ+ youth are more likely to deal with violence, bullying, and sexual assault than other students, which has a negative effect on mental health and self-esteem. It’s unsurprising that many young people struggle with coming out and the perception people will have of them if they do.

Just remember: you’re not alone. If that one tweet is proof alone, thousands of people understand you and know exactly what you went through. Now go forth and reclaim your teen years. You’re doing great, sweetie. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
