One of my many passions is for people to be allowed to live in truth and be able to be themselves. I had been caged up my entire life until just recently and I know there are many others just like me who are in situations where they just can’t get out. It hurts my friends but there is hope, whenever I am down in a rut I speak these affirmations over myself and they help to re-center, refocus, and value myself. These affirmations are for Trans-men and Trans-women. Be sure to take time for YOU today!

Transgender person,

You are beautiful

You are handsome

You made it through another day the best you knew how

You looked great today and your smile though it may be fake was adorable like you

I’m proud of you for making it through another day and holding on to hope

Your transition is going to take time

That is ok!

Good things start small and take time

If they didn’t they wouldn’t be good

I love you for who you are

Trans-woman, you are so beautiful and precious

Trans-man, you are handsome and brave

Trans-woman, I couldn’t be more thankful for your kindness

Trans-man, I couldn’t be more in awe of your passion

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.
