Every once in a while someone will ask me how long I have been "full time" or 24/7 as a woman.
The easy answer no one understands is I have lived my whole life as a transgender woman, you just never noticed and what exactly does that that mean anyhow?
It has just been in the last couple years, I have lived an "external" feminine life.
I guess 24/7 to me is to do everything from the stereotypical "girl" things to boy things too (like auto parts stores).
Getting here was tough, but I have a sense the toughest is yet to come.
My struggle is remembering gender is but a mirror and what people see of me from the outside may totally miss my insides. Then again I have a group of friends who have always seen me for what I am and they make life on the heaven side more than the alternative-more than they will ever know.
After the meeting I went to yesterday, I realized how fortunate I am truly am.
