Bruce Jenner You Are A True Hero!


Bruce Jenner's interview with Diane Sawyer about transitioning into a woman was truly courageous, brave and inspiring to the heart. It's really sad and tragic to think he has struggled with this for 60+ years but I also understand the struggle to accept yourself and the struggle to put who you are out there.

Bruce I am proud of you for having such courage, bravery, strength, rawness and honesty to stand up and become who you are. Your story and struggle is shedding light on such a real issue that many people face, thank you for opening the eyes of society and making a positive change by being you. You have no doubt have helped, inspired and saved so many others struggling by opening up. The world needs more people like you, YOU inspire me and are the definition of a true hero! 

If you understand the pain it causes someone to not be who they truly are and the struggle to accept themselves let alone deal with the rest of the world... a judgemental society...you will understand the need to accept people for who they are no matter how weird, outrageous, bizarre or different that may seem. Society has been creating conformity and taboos for a long time which has created a lot of pain and self hatred in people leading to unhappiness, depression, isolation and contributing to mental illness and suicide... NO ONE should ever have to go through that just to be who they are and to be accepted.

Anyone who has ever taunted, written mean things or made fun of Bruce Jenner should be deeply ashamed of themselves. Not only have you been brutally cruel and caused someone a lot of pain and heartache you have also let yourself down and society.

I feel inspired at the heart warming comments coming from society about Bruce's transition it is beyond amazing and exciting to see the outpouring of love and support for someone who is so brave and has struggled so much and for so long. Here are a few of my favourites from the stars...
  • Ariana Grande: Bruce Jenner is beautiful, we all need to commit to making this world more loving, supportive, SAFE/non judgemental place to be ourselves.
  • Kim Kardashian West: Your honesty has opened doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life!
  • Sam Smith: Absolutely flawed at how courageous and brave Bruce Jenner is. So inspiring and so powerful. Shame on anyone who dare judge.
  • Oprah Winfrey: "All of us deserve the right to be loved for who we are". Bravo
  • Rob Lowe: I was proud of Bruce Jenner in Montreal and I'm proud of him tonight. Some have to fight more than the rest of us for their happiness.
We are in need of a society more like this and I deeply thank Bruce Jenner for opening this powerful pathway even for more.

With love
Rainbow :) xoxo
