As good a time as any
This might be as good a time as any to stop since the beginning of another chapter of my life seems like a duly appropriate milestone. I can now say with absolute certainty that this will be my last ever entry here because the impetus to write here has dwindled and habit isn't a good enough reason to continue when your internal turmoil was the reason you began the blog in the first place. Risking repetition is also a good reason to stop.If I've learned anything in writing this blog for 10 years and over my almost 60 years of life is that you need to respect your essence. In figuring out who you are whatever steps you take moving forward should be towards fortifying and honoring the integrity which constitutes your being. Whether cis, transgender or gender variant that applies to everyone. Never let other people dictate who you are or make you feel pressured to compromise the essence which makes you unique. Life is simply too short for that.
Be yourself without fear of prejudice and while doing so keep your self respect intact because it's the only thing in this life we can control. Lastly, find people who get you and appreciate you for who you are and hold on to them as tightly as you can. In general be good to people and they will be good to you.
