Last night, while having what is rapidly becoming a regular late night chat with my friend Sarah, the following was discussed:
Me: “That’s why people think I’m brave and they “respect” me. Because they look at me and think wow. She is brave.
Sarah: “You say that like there’s something wrong with it. Is there?”
Me: “I mean, they look at how I look and think DAMN, to transition while looking like that?!?
Sarah: “You think people actually think that way?”
Me: “Yes, I do. Don’t you?”
Sarah: “No, I don’t.”
That is honestly how I feel. Now, I realize many of the people who read this are my friends. One of the most frustrating aspects of friendship is that sometimes, friends don’t tell you what you need to hear. I would like to ask you if this is why you think I am “brave”. Please be honest. You can either answer here in the comments, send me an “@” on twitter, or comment on Facebook. I won’t take it personally. I promise. I just need to know if this is all in my head or not.
