Its exactly a year since i started writing on this blog. I remember how it all started, i was browsing the internet for stories of trans* persons. The narratives were helpful, but somehow i just felt i needed something i could relate to.
Instead of seating, feeling sorry for myself and complaining, i decided to do something about it..
If there is one thing that has been therapeutic for me this year in my social transitioning besides gym off-course, its laying bare my feelings on this template. I just write about what i am going through, my fears my emotions concerns uncensored. I don’t have to worry about being politically correct, or what others will say because for me this is my space to express myself to seek self validation and not gather pity, collect hits or seek approval from anyone .
Sometimes i just enjoy being numb, not hear, see, say or feel anything, then they are times when i just want to think out loud and say whatever i want about anything and everything.
I leverage this platform to share my story, to educate, to learn from others.It is space to grow, to question to vent out and to celebrate.
I realised that i could also use this space to increase visibility of other trans* persons stories and assist in amplifying their voices.My love support goes to all the trans* persons who are in a worse off situation than i am in. Our truths differ, but our struggles are tied. The support i received from trans*gender persons, allies, magazines and readers has been overwhelming and i can only be thankful for the inspiring dialogues,features, advice and questions .
As i continue with my journey, i feel that i am not alone, i have people besides and behind me.I step into the new year with hope and joy in my heart. I pray that you will continue to walk this journey with me, its only the end of the year not the end of our lives.
