lea michele is so amazing, it’s so overwhelming. she’s so unbelievably strong and brave, and i admire so much about her. i think of all the grief she’s been dealing with, but not only that, the additional pressure from everything, and it’s just astounding. it’s like the whole world is watching and judging her every move and she chose and is choosing to rise up. she’s not crumpling, she’s not letting herself get pulled under, she’s doing her best to find something positive to move forward with and it is so inspirational. she’s dealing with everything, all these difficult things, as it comes with so much poise and grace and humanness, and it’s incredible, absolutely incredible. the fact that she has been such a source of strength for so many people, her fans, her co-workers, people she doesn’t even know, is one of the most amazing things. she is someone i can say i truly aspire to be like. if i could ever be half the woman that she is i would consider myself very lucky, and i do consider myself very lucky to call myself a fan of lea michele.
