When a fan gave Britney Spears a hand-written letter during her Piece Of Me meet & greets last week about his struggles of coming out and how she helped him through it, he never thought he’d hear back. But, to his surprise, Britney requested his address and penned him a letter back.

His letter to her reads:

“I honestly can’t believe I got to meet this wonderful and beautiful women again. She is the sweetest and nicest person alive. I got to give her my letter that I put so much effort into. The letter explained how she helped me get through a real tough period in my life these past couple of months, and how I wanted to end it all but she made me be strong. As I was leaving the building where meet and greet was held, Britney’s body guard ran and stopped me and said Britney requested my address so she could respond because my letter meant so much to her. Thank you for everything Britney. I wouldn’t be able to be so confident and open about my sexuality if your music and you didn’t help me. I love you so much, thank you for not only being my inspiration but helping me get back up and be strong.”

She responded:

Super cool of Britney to take the time to write a big fan back whom she made a big impact on! It’s very important to always be who you are and not allow others to bring you down. Be strong(er than yesterday). Kudos, Brit.
