A huge shout out to those people who affirm and can love me for who I am, you all are beautiful humans and I am full of hope for my life because of you. Thank you!
The beauty and love that comes out of all of you is authentic, raw, and overwhelming. I can’t even comprehend the love you all give because I have never personally experienced a love like this before. You would think to be married I would feel this kind of love but being married was a form of medicine to cure myself of being transgender. Marriage has been more painful than healing/loving, honestly. When people accept and validate me for who I really am the healing takes effect and I feel like I’m allowed to live authenticly. It’s beautiful and gives me so much hope for my future.
After living 28 years as a fake and just now being able to see the beauty in my authentic life it feels like I’m on cloud nine. The friends I have who use my preferred pronouns deserve a luxurious vacation and the friends who listen to the shit going on at the moment deserve a full spa day. All of them are beautiful, all of them help me feel beautiful, and without them, life would have been over. I know this walk is going to take time, the transition is going to take time but, I’ve got friends with me who won’t throw me out to the dogs and knowing that makes me feel warm and hopeful.
Thank you! I just had to say all of that, I wish I could do more because you all deserve so much more than a post. I love you all!
