Afew weeks ago I posted a responce to The Daily Post about my identity. I outlined a few things that help to define who I am or who I want to be. I posted it quickly because a rule I’ve been using for blogging is once I start I must finish it and either post it or delete it.
That post has bothered me because there are aspects of I don’t like. Yes I don’t really identify as trans but that is who I am and I am proud that I have been able to stand up and say it outloud. But how do I indetify is an almost impossible question to answer. I am constantly changing who I am. A few things that are concrete would be:
I am a US Marine, and a vet of the Iraq war.
I am a woman.
I am stylish.
A caring person who likes to help others.
I a writer and some day plan to publish a book about my enlistment.
I a traveler and will see every country in Europe, and will spend several monthes on each coninent, except maybe antartica.
There are as I stated in the other post more things than I can list. And most are really hard to put into words. But one of the things I’m most proud of was one my sisters boy-friend defined for me: I am a real person and I work hard to show people that, I don’t hold much back. He also told me that is why many people are afraid of me. They are so wrapped up in lieing to themselves that when they witness someone who doesn’t hold back they just can’t handle it.
Sorry for the spelling mobil wordress has no spell check and I need to post it now.
