Life is short so be the person you were meant to be. Actualise yourself as a person.
So many of us live our lives in the shadows of suppression and we are afraid to try something that takes us outside of our comfort zone. As I am telling you this I am encouraging myself as well. Things are never as scary as they seem to us.
I am not encouraging you to try a new drug or take up chewing tobacco but simply telling you that we are our own worst enemies when it comes to limitations.
Now I am not naturally a risk taker but when I have needed to take them they have for the most part payed off. When it comes to my life as a part time woman this certainly applies. You could say that I had no choice in the matter but I could also have continued to suffer for many more years.
Go out on a limb and try something new that you feel will have a positive impact on your life but were always afraid to try. You might be surprised how the risks involved are far less significant and the payoffs far more beneficial.
I am trying to draw from my life lesson in dealing with my dysphoria and apply it to other areas of my life. After all there is hopefully still much of it to live.
