This is so lovely. I Am Jazz star Jazz Jennings‘ brother Sander Jennings left the sweetest comment for his sister on a post she made about positivity on February 19. He said he “will continue to learn and be inspired” by his sister as her older brother. Aww!
Jazz, 19, shared an image with some reminders to herself and others like “Don’t worry, be happy” and “Love always,” and captioned the graphic, “Some positive affirmations I’ve been using to help me get through the rough times. We all deserve to be happy,” followed by a rainbow of heart emoji.
“For those struggling to believe the affirmations: Sometimes voicing the phrases out loud helps reaffirm it,” the reality star continued. “Today I went on a rampage of positive affirmations spoken verbally and started crying because it was so cathartic and I put so much emphasis into what I was saying. Believe what you say because you are beautiful and deserve to know it!”
In addition to the other comment, Jazz’s brother also replied, “Keep manifesting positivity! I love to see it,” along with a few heart emoji of his own. And he wasn’t the only one who was impressed by the young woman’s message.
“You’re correct Jazz,” one person wrote. “We all deserve to be happy.” Another fan commented, “[Love you], Jazz. [You] really inspire so many [people] to believe in themselves and love who they are [you’re] just so amazing. Keep being [you].”
A little over a week prior to Jazz sharing that uplifting message, she uploaded a photo of her family all together and wrote, “When the lights fade away and cameras shut down, my family always remains by my side. A unified kinship full of laughter, love and support.”
It sounds like they’ve really got her back, which is important when she runs into challenges on her journey — like when she had complications after a gender confirmation surgery. It all worked out in the end, and Jazz noted that she felt “great” after her third procedure.
We’re sure having her family by her side was a huge help in getting through that difficult period.
