Blessing is a word I often connect with religion to acknowledge everything an individual has to be thankful for. In my opinion, to be blessed often reflects having been granted help, guidance, or assurance. In the “coming out” process, I have often asked for blessings and prayed that one day they will be granted. Day and night I prayed for guidance, searching for the answers to my many questions, and hoping for an acceptance from my family that one day will surely come.
