How Time Flies
It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 6 months since I started my blog, and it feels like time has gone by so fast, yet so much has changed. I am so happy that my wife and M supported me with the idea of writing this blog, where I’ve had the chance to meet some great individuals and make some new friends. It’s given me the chance to develop into the person I am and will be, without the social expectations hanging over me (to some extent at least).
One of the great things I’ve come to appreciate from this blog, and reading others, is the appreciation of the diversity among all those in the trans community. With this divers crowd, it’s allowed me to develop my own feelings on who I am, while appreciating the differences and similarities which bring us together.
Opening up to all these divers views on gender, either from bloggers who live it, or parents/spouses who are supportive of it, has really emphasized to me that there’s no wrong way to be yourself. When I first started to realize that I had this feminine aspect to my identity, I started doing research online, and quickly realized that although we may all share some basic aspect to our identity, we have many differences as well. Each of our roads will likely lead in different directions, and if you feel like you’re going in the right direction, no one can tell you you’re going in the wrong way.
There’s a whole spectrum of emotions and feelings out there, all of which has helped me to begin to define who I am. I’ve also realized that things are rarely static for long. My thoughts on my identity have evolved over the last year and will continue to do so as I feel more comfortable with myself, while also learning from other people’s experiences.
With that, I thank you for taking interest in my story, as I am interested in so many of the blogs I follow. It’s been an incredible journey so far, and I’m eager to see where I stand after a year.
Have a great 4th of July holiday everyone,
