For the first time in my life I could truly explain, through your words the way in which I experience life and myself. Brenda… It all fell into place. I had found myself and had such a moment of clarity. It felt like such a big weight was lifted off of my shoulders. Finally I felt like it was ok to be me. I was not the only one. I had found people and a little space where I fit in. … I was at work and crying on the inside. Emotions ran wild inside me. I was ecstatic, sad, confused, motivated, inspired and astonished all at the same time. I wanted to phone and thank you and hug you. You had put all my feelings and experiences into the most beautiful and understandable words. People just always said I was complicated and complex. Hard to figure out, and also secretive about my life and myself. People say they never know where they stand with me. I could never explain to them or make them understand me better. Because I did not even know the real me. …Then you came along and changed my world, my life and my future. You have given me hope.  — Niko
