I don’t know you. I’ve never met you. I did see your past self in the LAX airport once, but I was too much of a chicken shit to tell you hello. If I saw you today, Caitlyn, I would say to you that, though I don’t know you, I am proud of you.
I’m proud of you for living for you.
I’m proud of you for being true to yourself.
I’m proud of you for being courageous.
And I’m proud to share my name with you.
Thank you for the reminder to always be true to yourself, to not fear what others think, and to hold your head up high when others try to get you down. At the end of the day, you are you.
And you are downright beautiful.
