I want to be a truth teller even when it is inconvenient. For years I struggled with lying to myself about being transsexual and thought I should  desperately not want to be. But we need to be honest because the truth always surfaces eventually.

My writing is blunt and direct but it doesn't have any malice within it because we are all struggling with something in this world and there is no point in being hurtful. Unfortunately the truth does initially hurt sometimes (as it first did me) but with its blunt force it can also eventually spur on healing because we are no longer mired in deceit; not with others and not with ourselves.

Eventually truth cauterizes the wound and heals as it did with me.
