Today I’m going to talk about friendship. Something I’m feeling a little short on these days.
I’ve always been a very private person; someone who would rather have a few very close friends than a hundred casual friends. It’s always been that way for me. But I never realized how important friendship was to my own peace of mind until recently.
Having a close friend can be hard work but pays huge dividends, both to the heart and to the head. And although privacy is something that might very well reduce complication and drama, it isolates.
I’ve worked so hard to maintain my privacy, both for myself and to protect those close to me, (especially as it relates to my gender bending activities) and I’ve been quite successful, only letting a very few get close. But when you put all your “friendship eggs” in the one basket, things can change .. and they have.
First, I lost someone close to me to an evil disease. Then a friendship or two faded when my work situation changed. Also, another was lost when my feelings of friendship were met with something I perceived as infatuation. And lastly, a little closeness was lost with another due to … well … I’m not really sure.
Due to my perceived need for privacy, I’ve been distant when many have reached out to me; partly because I was worried they would invade my space at an inopportune time, partly to avoid potential drama, and partly because I felt that having sex with me was their only motive.
So my suggestion to all my “sisters in heels” out there, please try to keep some balance between your privacy and your social life, and please consider that when life gets a little bumpy, a “guy in a skirt” might be there to hold your hand.
It’s a happy day here for a couple reasons.
First, I’ve come the realization that I have a chance to win the Noble Peace Prize next year. Although many think that guys who dress like chicks are insane, it seems the Noble Committee has us all beat. To give the award to someone who simply got elected destroys their credibility totally, in my eyes.
Just wait and see. The “fever” that this man has created will become a huge dividing force and a threat to freedom around the world.
And secondly, Thanksgiving is Monday up here in Canada. Happy Turkey Day to all my friends in Canada.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been following Jessica-Who on Twitter. I believe Jessica found me there, and as always, I checked out her tweets to see if a reciprocal “follow” was in order. Wow, was I impressed!
Twitter is used by many to bring attention to their “other” initiatives and this is the case with Jessica. Her tweets are always fun and include the latest TG happenings from the news and entertainment world but the excitement starts at her linked website.
Jessica-Who.com is a very professional, great looking, informative, entertaining blog site centered around all things transgendered. It’s written with personality, humor and compassion, and is updated often. Not all topics will apply to everyone but I honestly believe that you’ll enjoy most everything there.
Jessica’s married and quite young by (ahem) my standards (I won’t tell you what she said upon learning of my employment status .. lol) and brings a fresh outlook to many of the life experiences we’ve all been through in the early stages of our transgendered “careers”, albeit many years ago.
I’ve chosen an email subscription but there are other ways to follow Jessica, if email isn’t your style.
Please check her out! Jessica-Who.com.
