Never ever let anyone ever tell you that your emotions don’t matter or that your pronouns don’t make any sense or your disability is going to cause you to fail. You live out your truth the best you know how and anyone who doesn’t except you is trash and not worth YOUR time. Also remember you are resilient and anytime you have been what seemed like the lowest you where able to deal with yourself. You have been through a lot but you are here and I am here which means nothing is going to tear us down.

Look for that community.

Reach out.

Help others in their times of panic.

Remember that your emotions are fucking valid!

Life is better with you in it because difference is beautiful. Going against the normal of blond hair and blue eyes is revolutionary and “Difference” is what will make the world a better place. Embrace it with everything because at the end of the day you making it is one giant win. It was another day of living truth the best you knew how and you bringing even just a little bit of change goes a long way.

Make 2019 your year and take living that truth to the next level. “Living your truth” was the mantra for 2018 let make “Live your truth and FLY” this years.

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.
