Sometimes you have to remind yourself of the person you used to be to appreciate the person who you have become and are becoming. The work is never over but sometimes we forget just how far we’ve come, we can be so hard on ourselves at times because maybe we are not where we want to be.
The thing about progression is that there is always going to be room for improvement, there’s always going to be new targets to smash and new goals to achieve so we should never lose sight of where we have come from.
The woman I am today is someone completely different to the one who came out as a lesbian 10 years ago. I didn’t know myself or know what it ment to just be myself, I conformed to what I thought I was supposed to be, I was playing a role. A role where I thought I had to come across as hard.
To me being a masculine identifying woman doesn’t mean I have to exert my dominance in an aggressive way or carry my anger on my back because I think I can’t express my emotions. I was so lost and misguided surrounded by a community who also didn’t know who they were. If I’m honest it was a very hard and confusing time for me.
Now I’m simply me, I know exactly who I am and what I stand for. I’m not swayed by those around me and nor do I act a role. I own who I am and everything I say and do. I live my truth because it’s the only life where I feel free from all the bs that comes with keeping up a facade.
I do me. I’m fortunate enough to have been blessed with both masculine and feminine energy and I embrace them both with open arms, by doing this my soul secretes happiness and my pores leak love.
I am she, I am me
