Thank you Stefanya,
You are pretty darn cute in your picture. You have a nice happy face and an beaming smile.
Maybe I would be OK also, but that is part of the unique elements to an individual’s transition. For some reason I don’t want to see much of the other me anymore. Maybe it is because I know that person so intimately, I know his sins and his failures; and while I thank him for getting me to this point in life, I truly need to be “not him” as much as possible.
I am trying to bury more than a few bad memories; I often wonder how foolish that is. If I only achieve a piece of freedom from earlier self, it will all be well worth it.
I hope to have a smile as bright as your’s when I finish.
