(Hugs) You are neither worthless nor a coward. You are doing what you have to do at this moment to survive, just like everyone else. Be kind and loving to yourself, first of all.
Aww! Thank you :)
I never felt comfortable among guys. I don’t really click with most other trans women face-to-face. Most of my friends are cis women, but I still feel uncomfortable in gender-segregated “women’s spaces.”
It’s not fun. :(
I’ll do exactly what I FEEL like doing. Nothing more, nothing less. Also, makeup, you know, costs money and shit. What I’m doing with it right now works, and I’m not going to change just for change’s sake.
It was great getting to see Laverne Cox speak tonight, but I’m left with the nagging feeling that I just don’t fit well into any group… not “women,” not even “trans women.” It’s bracing to feel like you are destined to never fit in, particularly when you desperately crave connection with others and a sense of community.
