"To you who are feeling the world is against you..."

A Pantene commercial out of the Philippines is making the internet emotional AF!

The ad goes through transgender Filipino supermodel Kevin Balot's journey of self-discovery. "To you who are feeling the world is against you," begins the two-minute clip, "don't be scared." 

We see several points of "the girl called Kevin's" adolescence, growing up, and her helping her younger self understand who she is.

"Everything beautiful about you had nothing to do with your gender," says the voiceover. "The journey won't be easy, but I know you will be stronger."

The commercial went viral on Twitter, and suddenly, everyone is collectively sobbing.

 

 

 

Even Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo was moved.

Is someone cutting onions in here??
