I’m usually pretty good at recognizing and articulating the way I feel about things, but WOW, this just hit me so incredibly hard. This has been so much more than just a television show for me, Naya, Heather, Brittana, they’ve changed my life. They helped me to see myself, to accept myself, and along the way, I’ve made these absolutely incredible friends. I’m so incredibly thankful to them, and to all of you guys. This journey has changed my life. I can’t believe it’s time to say goodbye, and I just don’t think I’ll ever be ready for that.

"I’ve tried so hard to push this feeling away and keep it locked inside, but every day just feels like a war. And I walk around so mad at the world, but I’m really just fighting with myself. I don’t want to fight anymore. I’m just too tired. I have to just be me."- Santana Lopez, I Kissed a Girl
