Punjabi LGBT Youth / ਪੰਜਾਬੀ LGBT ਯੂਥ
To my Punjabi LGBT Youth across the globe, i understand your frustration and pain. I understand the suppression and inability to be yourself. I hear your stories daily in my inbox. I hear your stories across my social media. I feel your fear. I feel your sorrow. I see how life is in the villages across India. I see how you are forced to marry and conform.
What can you do? Focusing on your current uncomfortable reality causes you to desire for something better. A need for freedom and ability to be whatever you want to be. You were born to understand that your happiness does not depend on your conformity to others. Your happiness does not depend on making others happy. Your happiness is your own birthright and personal to own. Focus on what feels good. Focus on your vision for equality and acceptance and keep believing that. Do not contradict yourself by looking at the current reality but rather create the reality you so wish and desire.
Help one another. Support one another. Assist one another. Gather in groups and motivate one another. Be there for each other. Create your own tribe and group. Read and watch positive inspirational stuff. See how other LGBT groups are working towards your goals and use that for your cause.
Believe in your power! Know that you are powerful beyond your imagination. Your positive thoughts and feelings are that what will spiral you to success. Tell yourself of your beauty and reason to be on the planet. Remind each other that you are perfect the way you are.
Infinite good wishes
