    She~ I love and appreciate the woman I am today.

    She has been here since before my birth. She has carried all of my burdens and revelled in all my joys. She has cried through every pain and sang through every pleasure. She was me when I was betrayed by those meant to protect me. She was me when I forgot the lessons of my...

    As of now I'm a heterosexual semi-submissive

    female-to-male transvestite, and I'm proud I've started discovering myself finally. I'm so happy i can now think beyond what I've been taught: that girls dress like girls and love boys, and boys dress like boys and love girls, and we don't talk about sex.

    It took a long time for me to finally accept

    myself as I am, but I can honestly say that I definitely do. I'm beautiful inside and out, and I feel no shame in showing myself to the world in complete and utter vulnerability. Not in a shallow, egotistical, conceited type of way. Rather in a confident manner that says "I'm...

    I am not a snowflake.

    I am not a sweet, infantilising symbol of fragility and life. I am a strong, fierce, flawed adult woman. I plan to remain that way, in life and in death. Stella Young

    I've Learned To Accept Myself

    I don't know if I'm just a shy quiet girl or if that's just part of my social anxieties, but I have always had a problem with the way I am. I've always wanted to be more outgoing. Less passive and more aggressive. I've never had a problem making friends. It seemed like the only...

    This wasn't an easy stage to reach,

    in fact I might not have and maybe never will, perhaps all i'm feeling right now is premature enlightenment. If that is the case, then that still means I have progressed from the position I was once within. Will I still have issues with myself? Yes, nothing can change...

    When you are content to be simply yourself

    and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you. lao Tzu maybe everyone won't respect you. But you'll respect yourself a deal more.

    Who I am, I cannot change.

    I accept that. Who I will become, I can help create. That I can be better is a truism that I am responsible for.
