More able to relate

Living mostly as a female gets easier over time and I think I know why. It's certainly not because being a woman is easier (far from it) but that it is more comfortable when you are more aligned with yourself.

Gender in and of itself is not that important but it is when yours is even a bit out of whack. Anyone who understands what gender dysphoria feels like knows how brutal it can be and will comprehend what I say here which is why I have so much respect for those who have done what they need to often in spite of the significant difficulties involved.
I have since concluded that I was born a girl but learned to be a boy which took me the longest time to comprehend and accept. But now having completed my introspection over decades, I can finally more relate to those people who do not feel any misalignment.
As my readers know, my own transition process has been long, uniquely my own and because it has worked I continue to preach against a one size fits all formula. It needs to be your own and just know that the worst of your fears often do not materialize; your insides will be calmer than they have ever been before.
Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year! Joanna, I have been reading your blog for a long time, actually starting from the beginning. I have been enjoying reading your introspections. I noticed with your new blog format, there isn't a way to access your past posts like I used to from the top right menu pull down. Is there a way to institute an archive list like before?

    1. Wonderful! I am now back to reading. On year 2016 moving forward. :-)
