I am charging ahead with my own journey, and I love it. In the process, I’m making contact with more and more girls like me. Many of them are not living publicly as the girls they are. They feel ashamed or they find the process intimidating, or both. I understand how that feels. Even so, I proceeded.
The best quote I’ve come across to describe my own reasoning is:
Die with memories, not dreams
I hope to live a long time, but when it all ends, I will have lived richly and openly by my own values.
