These Responses To Leslie Jones' "I Might Die Alone" Tweet Are Heartwarming

Leslie Jones is known as a lighthearted comedian who steals hearts as a frontwoman for SNL and notably for her past role in Ghostbusters.

While Leslie has reached optimum levels of "celebrity" from her career, underneath, she is really just like the rest of us. She's a successful woman - and though she doesn't look it, is in her 50's - wondering the same thing most single women of any age are: Will I find love? Am I doing this all in vain? Will I end up alone? Will I die alone? In a recent tweet, Leslie posted a photo of herself in the gym post-workout with a caption that reveals that celebrity status can never take away the humanness we all possess.

Normally, social media can be a cruel place to stage such a vulnerable confession. But the responses Leslie received were so heartwarming that it became a reminder that we are not alone in our pursuit for happiness, success, fulfillment, or whatever our soul desires in life. There are others out there who are going through similar emotions but still extend their hands to lift up the woman who, whether she knows it or not, has raised us up in dark moments.

On Instagram, the response of support has been even more unwavering. There, the post has gained over 34,000 likes and more than 4,800 comments. One of them was notably from actress Meagan Good who offered some insight and encouraging words of her own to Leslie. "The right people will notice," she began. "You are a 'Gift' and God doesn't give His precious gifts away to everyone. He's selective."

Leslie's tweet and Instagram post were reminders that it is not out of the ordinary to wonder if we're enough, if our singularity is permanent, or if there is purpose for who we are trying to be. The responses that followed were also a reminder that there is hope in life and in humanity, and that we are not alone in the way we feel.

It's important for us to keep speaking our truth and surround ourselves with others who will mirror the light inside of us.

Women In Their 40s Share The Beauty-Related Things They Wish They Did In Their 20s

It is Eartha Kitt who once said, “Aging has a wonderful beauty, and we should have respect for that.” I couldn’t agree more. That’s why, it really does get under my skin, that we live in a culture that is almost obsessed with staying young. Why? Don’t you want to grow, evolve…mature? That’s why I’m also not big on people who are damn near obsessed with looking 20 years younger than they are. Nah, personally, I think the goal of looking great for and at your age is where it’s at because, as my mother (who ages remarkably well) used to say, “I’ve earned every year. I don’t want to be looking like a child when I’m not.” (It’ll preach.)
