TG Motivation - Too Short



I'm afraid that this caption might be a little preachy.  I didn't intend for it to go there; originally, it was meant to be a single sentence coupled with a fun photo (my typical format for the motivational sort of captions).  But as I stared at the first line, my mind sort of got carried away.  I couldn't help but write something a little more detailed because, I think, the concept of "be yourself" is flawed (or at least incredibly naive).  

But yeah - that's how this one came about.  Hope it's not too much of a "soapbox" moment for you all.

    I, for one, do not think it was "preachy".....I'm an "in the closet" transwoman, and the reason for that is because I fear for my life on the rare occasion that I DO GO OUT as my TRUE SELF. I just want to live my life as any other human being......happy & satisfied BEING ME. I'm not hurting anyone, I'm not a sexual deviant. Why SO MANY individuals out there feel threatened by someone like me, enough so that they would attack and/or kill me, totally confounds me. I too, WISH that EVERYONE on this planet was open-minded enough to at least TRY to learn AND understand about things unknown to them and be more tolerant.

    1. I genuinely believe that a better world is coming. I don't know that it'll happen in my lifetime, but I can't help but hope that it'll eventually come to a point where people won't have to be afraid to live their lives on their own terms.
