    Smarter Than The Average Bear

    While I accept myself as I am I don'really expect most others to do the same. As a child I felt rejected by most of the world. My father never seemed to see me. I realized one day that I did not have to please either him or the rest of society, just myself. That is when I...

    Me, Wordcard

    The Real Deal Here!

    A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he...

    21+ Years Later~

    Self-Acceptance didn't come overnight. It was a process. I can't remember anything harder in my life than coming to terms with myself nor do I remember anything more liberating than allowing myself to be that which I am.

    Accepting myself as being a Transgender

    Trans-woman was one of the hardest things I've done... I became a lot more open-minded. It would be ridiculous and hypocritical for me to be Transgender and go bash gays or be racist or something. So my lesson is this: Learn to accept who your about. I realized there were things...

    I Have Learned to Finally

    I now love and accept myself for the person I am, most flaws and all.  Without being or sounding arrogant or self-indulged, I am a very dependable, interesting person.  I am what I am, and I'm not what I'm not.  Love me or hate me, take me as I am.
