So, I realize I am posting this today, but I actually received a DM (direct message) from a friend on Twitter, yesterday, so that’s why I used yesterday’s date for today’s posting.
But, I’m one again feeling a little more comfortable and a little more confident in being myself. I often have described myself in weird ways, but I have a friend that allows me to be me and she said the following to me:
“…bring Stephanie in and accept the girlie side because it’s a part of you!!!”
It’s not the first time she’s referred to my feminine side in a positive manner, but her consistency (as well as others’) have made me feel more comfortable embracing that part of myself. I have absolutely no desire to change my gender – i.e. sex-change, for numerous reasons that I won’t go into, because as much as a controversy it can be to people, I have my belief and I’m secure in that belief. However, having friends that embrace me as I learn to embrace myself is truly a comforting feeling.
