loving what you see

Realizing and admitting that I was transsexual took me many years, but that fog has now cleared. We don’t get to pick who we are in life but that reality cannot be hidden indefinitely especially from ourselves. What I am doing today is trying to judiciously reconcile the reality of the life I built with the person I genuinely am inside.

That hasn’t been easy but the mere fact that I am no longer negating who I am, has made a huge difference in my level of happiness. I can now live my life closer to the way I want even if it is not yet a perfect reflection of the ideal.

We become experts at subterfuge and denial until we run out of road and there is nowhere else to go but stare at a mirror and accept. The next step is to love what you see even if that image is something you were taught was an aberration of humanity.

I am there now, comfortable and able to see a more positive outlook on my life and there is no price that can be put on that.
