Growing up I was taught that if it’s not Adam and Eve then it’s a sin, it’s an abomination and it isn’t real.
You could imagine the fear I felt when I saw a girl in my grade 2 class and felt butterflies in my stomach because I knew that god wouldn’t love me the same anymore.
I pushed the feelings aside because I knew my parents wouldn’t accept a daughter who loved girls in the same way they love each other.
When I was in 8th grade my cousin came out as gay and although most of my family approved, the odd relative turned their heads and looked away because how could one of their own be gay?
I was scared to be myself and I often thought to myself how that could be because if there’s one thing church taught me it was to love who you are and those around you.
When I was 19 I met a girl who made my heart fill with warmth and my stomach fill with butterflies and for once I wasn’t scared.
I knew that this feeling was real and I had to come to terms with it. I couldn’t keep the secret inside any longer, I knew I had to be free.
The fear I felt when I told my parents I was gay was the same type of fear I felt when I went on the Drop Zone at Canada’s Wonderland.
You could imagine the relief I felt when I read the message from my parents saying “We love you just the same, nothing else matters. You’ll always be our baby girl.”
The journey to get to where I am now has been a long one, but if there’s one thing I’m thankful for, it’s that I let myself be myself.
I’ve never felt more comfortable and confident in who I am and I wish I realized it beforehand that who you love truly doesn’t matter. What matters is if you’ll love them through thick and thin.
Happy pride month to all of you who are a part of this wonderful community. Out or not, know that you are valid and you are loved. 🏳️🌈
We do not know what went down between Boy squad and balloon squad.
We do not know what went on between Yousef and Noora before Sana walked in.
This show is purposefully biased from the point of view of the main.
We do know that Noora doesn’t know Sana likes Yousef and just found out her best friend was keeping secrets from her.
Remember this time last season Isak had just seen Even kiss Sonja AND had a fight with Mahdi.
Thing look so so bad but we don’t know enough to start flinging accusations or hating on characters.
All the conflict and feelings you are feeling are valid, this is exactly how you are meant to be feeling, but senseless emotional outrage will help no one. Lets learn from the previous seasons and hope for the better instead of bemoaning the current turmoil.
