Conformity, secrecy, staying safe
Thursday, June 14, 2018
It's what I've been conditioned to do all my life. I grew up in a family where ...you didn't question, went to school, went to church, parents were always the opposite sex , you didn't do anything out of the ordinary that would draw undue attention or shame...I think you get the picture. Obviously...this post isn't about lbs lost or exercise ....but it is in a way. Things don't stop during a diet, life and all its challenges keep happening....maybe that's why dieting is considered so hard?
I've heard "the gay agenda" spoken so many times and I'm sure I still have no clue exactly what that is.
And here I am, the bisexual parent of a transgender kid. and the only shame I feel at this moment ....is not allowing myself to love, grow and give as much as I could. The only "agenda" I've got right now is to keep taking baby steps towards finding and celebrating the real me ( and I hope, helping others do the same) .
Excuse the rambly post ...I sit here and think 45...oh geez maybe midlife crisis really is a thing :P
