One month...so many things happened.
I lost the idol that meant and still means the world to me. This situation is what I had been afraid of for such a long time even though I never thought it would become reality this soon. Chester is the person that's dragged me out of suicidal thoughts so often I can't even count it, he is the reason I met pretty much all of the people I truly care about. The people that have such a positive impact on my life and make feel understood and loved every single day.
You know how people always say that you shouldn't meet your idols because you'd only be disappointed? They obviously were not a fan of Chaz.
I was lucky enough to go to two shows and even got into a meet and greet at one of them. There's no way to tell you how incredibly thankful I am to have had these opportunities.
He was so incredibly kind and respectful to each and every one of us fans and treated us as if we were on the same level, kind of like friends. He listened to us and you could tell that he genuinely cared about what we had to say.
I'm not even gonna start talking about his on stage performances. You've all seen what I'm talking about.
Now....one month later I'll feel like I'm okay one moment and the next the world seems to be crashing down on me again. But if there's one thing this situation has proven to me once again, it is that there's a reason for why we're called soldiers. We don't just give up. We're all fighting for each other and are never alone in our fights because of that. This fan base has really become my family and I'm proud of that. We're gonna get through this together and carry his legacy on.
My dms are always open if you need to talk♥️
