My Personal Journey
I consider myself non-binary with balanced masculine/ feminine energy. I was assigned female at birth (AFAB) who identified more as a demiboy, but I spent most of my adult life as a lesbian. I'm lesbian- phoric, focused on lesbians for my romantic love relationships. Trans also speaks to my labels because I did not identified with my assigned sex at birth, which is the basic definition of trans. You don't have to move all the way to the other gendered box to be trans, you only need to liberate yourself from the box that you were forced to play in society.
Releasing control and viewing things from a different perspective, is the easiest way to true happiness. Authenticity springs from the heart. Integrating heart with will, emotions and actions supports you in true expression. This combination sets your soul's purpose into motion here on this Earth.
As much as I wanted to run towards the finish line so that my happiness could begin... I had to go at a authentic slower pace to find truth in each and every choice and decision.
Transition is a difficult process, the physical part is only a small portion compared to the entire journey. It's like one of those iceberg pictures where you see a tiny bit of it sticking out of the water but the real, entire iceberg is gigantic, unseen underneath the water.
It took patience, strength, and courage to not rush it. What I found is that bypassing always catches up to you and mental and emotional challenges can and do surface. Through challenging yet rewarding personal work, I was able let all sides of me shine in society.
So if you are feeling confused and don't know what to do, contact me. Because I understand this journey, I can help coach you through it. Together we will lay out your goals and find actions to get the improvements you desire.
