It’s okay to not like your family.
It’s okay to want to end relationships with your family.
It’s okay to create a new family with other people who love and accept you.
You do not owe your family anything.
You owe yourself peace of mind and a healthy living environment. But you do not owe them shit.
Take care of yourself
Over this weekend I missed one dose of hormones and have been off schedule with the other doses. Now this evening I wake from a nap and I’m a raging bitch who paranoid that no one really loves them. Took an hour to calm down. No longer raging but my brain is still twisting things. This is not normal for being off schedule with my hormones. WTF.
Spent the weekend camping in Lake George. Had an interesting challenge. Figuring out how to shave and apply makeup at the camp site since using the bathrooms would out me. Luckily I was able to borrow a small mirror. So I grabbed a small Tupperware container I brought and put some bottled water in it so I could rinse the razor. Such a challenge but I was able to shave with no nicks and apply my makeup. Note to self, shaded area gives the worst light for applying makeup. But it came out decent. No streaks at least with my foundation. I was mostly passable.
Then we went to Lake George Village for lunch. On our way out saw a cute Irish store. Picked up an inexpensive claddagh ring with a fake stone to represent an engagement ring that I had never had.

- That yelling solves problems
- That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
- That age correlates to importance
- That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
- That the default for someone is straight and cisgender

I know people on here support me. But I also need them to tell me. I need that reassurance. But I don’t get it. But I do try and give it. idk I wish we were more open w each other on here xx
Well I support you 100%. I think you are an amazing person. If you ever want to talk, feel free to message me on FB.
When did we become broken? So many of us are fighting personal demons and losing. I read so many posts on various social medias of distress. We have let fear consume us. I can count the number of times on Tumblr I have reblogged information to suicide hotlines knowing that there are people out there who are losing their battles and feel there is no way out. Where has the hope gone? We fear what people think of us, we fear being unique, we fear being ourselves, and we distance ourselves due to fear of letting people in. I follow a blog called “Need a Couch”, which is a network for LGBT people who have been kicked out of their homes. What has happened to people that they would rather throw their kids out on the street than embrace them for who they are. Some parents are so afraid of others judging them for having a LGBT child, that they would rather discard their children with the trash. It makes my heart break. Recently I have seen a rise in posts of people who have started cutting themselves or contemplating suicide. Where is the love? People should not be afraid to be themselves. We need to raise self esteem instead of breaking it down. I have friends who constantly feel they aren’t good enough. But they are and I try to tell them that every chance I get. We need to replace fear and hate with love. I myself have let fear consume me. Everyday I step out the door I fear what people will say or do to me just for being different, for being a transgender woman. It is so much easier to hide myself behind a computer. I can easily be myself online, but ask or want to meet up in person and I have a panic attack. I would love to hang out and spend time with so many of you but I am afraid to ask. Where did this fear come from? I know I am not alone. Just scroll through the LGBT blogs on Tumblr. We need to fear less, love more, and hug more. You never know how a simple hug could make someone’s day. Or a simple chat over coffee. We are not alone. We need to support each other. This has been weighing on my heart for a long time now and I really needed to get it out.
