  •  You're so right about that! (15+ / 0-)

    Suppose someone is reading your diaries and encounters a situation like yours - a child dealing with being transgender. Could be their own family; could be a friend asking for advice. There is guidance in your story, for those needing it. Words are very powerful! Imagine if, instead of saying, “I'm never ok, but I'm not less ok than usual, if that's what you mean,” your husband had said, "This is the worst thing that's ever happened to me!" People tend to catastrophize their experiences with words; your writing shows us there are other, better ways to frame our feelings, our reactions.

    "Do your little bit of good where you are; it is those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world." ~ Desmond Tutu
