Just Go For It

One of the most famous mantras that I heard from Katie in my transition to a public individual was something along the lines of “just go for it”. She herself was in the arts and she supported me through all of the transition that I was facing in my life. When it came to creative things, she supported me even more. I was becoming an author for the first time in my life and it is something that I continue to take a lot of pride in. Just Go For…

The One Behind the Transition

Sara was the reason for the transition. I was entering into a period of confusion in my life as to the direction that I was to go. If it was not for having Sara in my life for a short time, I would not be where I am at today. She was a defining force in my transition into this life. After having her in my life, I did not see a transition as something that was scary to me. I now see the transition as something that would be…

Smyrna 12

There are a lot of people in the world who only think about themselves. While it is important to think of the self as the most important thing in life, many people do not understand that we are a part of a wider society that consists of many people throughout the world. We will not find a person that is exactly like us individually, but we are obligated to be a part of the world. Just because we are a part of the world does not mean that we have…

Unconditional

One of the most important things that I try to incorporate into my life is the idea of showing emotions unconditionally. I say things like they are and I take people for their word.

This is something that I take a lot of pride in because it is my belief that it is much…

Not So Nice After All

One of the most damming things I saw came from Alaina. Once I told her that I was not going to join the Mormon Church, she never talked to me again. It is one of those things that did make me sad for a time, but I realized that she only wanted to be close to me because of the idea that I was interested in joining her Church. What would it have been like if I did? I do not believe that anything in that friendship was real and…
