I would like you all to know that I am still alive, though I’ve been going through changes and self-discovery. I’ve moved three times in the past few months and will be moving a fourth here soon. I’ve made, lost, and regained friends. I’m finding new work and new experience. I’m making new plans. I’m taking hold of my life at last. I’m working to truly begin transitioning.
For those who do not know yet, one of my self-discoveries is that I’m not really a man, but a woman. My chosen name is Lily Marie. My surname will remain the same.
It started as, frankly, an experiment. I, regrettably, made comments that were unintentionally hurtful to a trans* man. In hopes of better understanding what I had done wrong I had decided to spend the following month of November as a girl. Needless to say, I never went back. I have discovered a world of confidence and self-respect that I never had as a man. I feel as though this is truly how I am supposed to be.
So this is where I have been these past few months, Tumblr. Unfortunately, this is a short visit. I will try to return again soon.
