    Starting To Be Myself.

    I have been dressing femme at work for a while now.  Sometimes I wear dresses.  It is different for me and I have been finding just what feminine means to me.  It is not just the the clothing but figuring out how to have a feminine voice (I don't mean what I sound like).  I...

    And for some reason, I think it's working.

    Lately I've been feeling better, like I know myself better. Especially after going to the concert on Sunday, it reminded me of all the things I love to do and how much I love Craig Mabbitt :)

    I Want To Escape

    Am I supposed to care about social norms

    or am I actually & literally just supposed to be myself? If I "do me", I get looked at as a bad or crazy person. When I show who I really am and no one gets it, it becomes that much easier to hide pieces of me. I'd rather be accepted than lonely. But that's ironic because...

    I was abused for years by the people I thought

    were my family. Through their abuse they have turned me into a person who is always scared, who trusts no one including herself. A person who feels hopeless, who feels no one cares, who thinks she's dumb and good for nothing. Who has a hard time saying no to people for fear of...
