I’m on the brink

I feel like I’m about to sink

Life is throwing me in all directions

There are just no medications

when is there going to be a unkink

Jobs, family, parents, friends, and the unknowing are all the things pulling me and throwing me in all directions. Right now I don’t feel like I can calm down and take a deep breath because of everything in front of me that needs to happen. I have a little good news I may get hired at USPS here in a few weeks but that is still a few weeks out. Life at home is getting harder and harder, I go to the local coffee shop every night just to get away and focus on myself (well try anyway) and the more I do the harder it is to go back to the place I can’t even call home anymore. It’s more of a place I just sleep and babysit my kids. Something has to happen there has to be some sort of unkinking because I am spread out too thin and can’t reel myself in. I wish I could just take a weekend to re-center and refresh, this non-stop with no signs of slowing down is exhausting.

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
