I can relate to 'her' plight... Sort of. But the opposite. Not having had the balls to take the necessary steps toward becoming the woman I should be, back when it could have been a better result. Lacking the courage to be me in the face of social "norms" that still refuse to accept the fact that all humans are not simply one-or-the-other, and that biology is not the end-all & be-all of an individual's identity! Sorry for the moment of self-reflection, Nikki. It is a well-told tale, even as sad as her story is.Peace,Love&Kisses;Elle
I think we can all relate to it, albeit in different ways. None of us are nearly as courageous as we want to be, especially when dealing with the stigma associated with bucking social norms. The best advice I can give (for what it's worth) is to simply live your life without regard for how it's seen by the rest of the world. Easier said than done, I know, but we all need a goal, right?
