be sure to live

Get out there.

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.

my last post

This will be my last blog post.

When I wrote recently that this blog had another seven years of life in it I was trying to convince myself that it was true. It was in fact a little bit of self delusion.

With almost 3,000 posts to date I have accomplished what I set out to do which was to heal myself and in the process share some of the struggle I had been through with others on the chance they might find some value in my words. After seven years of writing, my life still isn't perfect; no one's is. But I have discovered a path forward completely free of the trappings which society would have had me adopt so I could fit in.

Over the last 25 years of my life I have turned over every stone I could find while exploring this topic and in the process realized that we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of this deeply complex subject. What I have ultimately learned is that my instincts have more value than what someone who isn't gender dysphoric writes about me. We are …

epilogue

While this blog is most definitely over, I wanted to explain that part of the reason is that it was getting in the way of writing my next book called "Notes, Essays and Short Stories from the North" which will combine philosophy, trans issues, my observations on life, some short fiction and things that have happened to me over my life and continue to (both trans related and not).

When it is complete I will post the news here and will be happy to send you a free copy upon request in either PDF or eBook format. All I ask is that you provide me with some feedback once you're done reading it.

I'm only in the early stages so it will be a while.

Be well all of you....

love of self

If you feel you are doing something wrong it shows. Your demeanor, body language and facial expression all conspire to betray you.

You are a clandestine "man in a dress"; you know it and everyone else can too. Your cover has been blown. I've been there and it's frustrating. The source goes back to your self image and the notion that you are somehow a freak of nature; and perhaps you are but what of it? the only way out is to embrace yourself fully and unconditionally. I don't mean to suggest that you are perfect but just that you were created this way and you need not seek forgiveness for it. You are a creation of God.

Misinterpreted religion is a big culprit in all this. These negative images of yourself came from reinforcement of stereotypes by ignorant people interpreting what is right and moral by their own barometer. You simply ingested the message and bought it as the gospel truth. Self confidence and critical thinking is the way out of your dilemma. It can…
