Deep Gratitude to @annefacee These pandemic times have been a time of interrogation, reflection, learning, and unlearning–which for me, includes exploring my gender identity and the ways in which I can get so tied up in how others may hypothetically react to it, let alone perceive it. I sat on this recording for several months as my fear of not “succeeding” kept me discouraged and apprehensive. Perfectionism–a very old learned behavior of mine from childhood– is the antithesis of everything I believe gender and queerness to be. For me, gender and sexuality are not fixed, and there is no right or wrong way to express those parts of you, as long as you aren’t harming others while doing so. Yet, sometimes what we know to be true in our hearts isn’t always present in our internal dialogues and the way in which we treat ourselves in private.
