An unexpected gift

I talked with someone today who has seen me both as him and as Kira. She mentioned how much happier I seem as myself and she was happy for me… It was surprising, exciting, and terrifying all at the same time. It is so difficult to see the change in ourselves, with nothing but our thoughts and a mirror. Hearing what she said, I was given a chance to glimpse how the world sees me.

It was a rare gift I will not soon forget.

  1. Not only did friends who knew me before and after I began transition tell me how much happier and more comfortable with myself I seemed to be, one lady friend remarked to me “You certainly do Deanna a whole lot better than you ever did David!”
