I didn’t really feel like standing and getting an award … I didn’t feel worthy of that.
But I knew I had to drag myself out of my bed, put on my damn boots, walk up here tonight and say thank you to you guys.
Thank you so much. You guys are going to make me cry.
I’m gonna try to not cry, but it’s not going to work.
I want to especially thank my fans, who I love and appreciate more than you guys will ever know.
And to my peers, your support over the last few years has literally saved my life.
I’ve never really thought of myself as a trailblazer. I’m just as scared and flawed as any person I know.
My message has always been to believe in yourself and love yourself just as you are.
When I write those words, I do so as a reminder to myself as much as anyone else.
Thank you so much for reminding me that what I’m doing is worth it, and thank you for caring.
This is a huge reminder that I can’t give up.
I have to keep fighting for the truth and I have to keep fighting for my dreams.
If I can’t give up, neither can anyone else out there with dreams.
