This is Jacquelyne aka JacqueDreams. She is a 15 year old bisexual; and this is her story.
“I wasn’t being myself; I was unhappy. That’s when I realized my happiness matters too. I sat my sister down first and let her know that this is who I am and this is who I love. Eventually that led into my mom and then my brother in law. When it came to my friends I never really ever brought it to their attention or ever really come out to them. It was more like me being able to show interest in both guys and girls and eventually they had just caught on. Although some did have the balls to just come up to me and ask me straight up and of course my answer would just be yes because I was no longer going to hide who I really am.”
Having to come out is probably one of the hardest things anyone has to go through. People will then have the fear of being judged and no longer liked or being looked at differently just because of who you choose to love which is stupid, but unfortunately this is the way our society works. This then leads me on to your happiness and Jacque had a few things to say about what makes her happy.
“What makes me happy is being able to help others. Whether it just giving advice or being there for someone when they need to vent, being able to provide for others when they don’t have it. It doesn’t matter what it is that i’m helping with, just the fact that they chose me to confide in means a lot when people can trust me and it makes my heart happy.”
Being happy is not only trying to make others happy but its revolved around being able to love yourself and being content with who you are; so lastly I had asked her what she loves about herself and basically what makes her who she is.
“What I love about myself is that I am not judgmental, many people believe that others need to look a certain way and act a certain way. And I personally believe the complete opposite which i’m glad I have. Something else I love about myself is that I’ve learned to not give a fuck about anyone else’s opinion and that’s something that used to bother me a lot; but now I couldn’t care less. These are just two awesome qualities that most people lack in this society, but I’ve learned to strengthen them.”
Although I’ve known her for almost 6 yrs, you’ve now learned a lil bit about Jacque too
