    The Woman Inside, Lauren’s Journey.

    You have to leave the past behind!

    I am writing a book about my journey, some have told me it will be an autobiography of memoirs, and so it shall be. I have been digging deep into the far recesses of my memory and have many recollections of things and events that occurred throughout my lifetime.

    In the process of writing down memories one often experiences a wide range of emotions, depending upon what the recollections were. So I recalled a comment made by a very wise friend I now have who is also a trans woman. “…you are a new person now, there’s no returning, you move forward with your new life, straight and tall, and you have to leave the past behind.”

    Yesterday I had a delightful time, I was invited to have lunch with two dear ladies I used to work with. They’re now back in the building several times a month, which is so good! We talked about so many things and had a great time together, but what was so wonderful for me, was the fact that, I was “one of the girls.” We talked and laughed and shared stories and they told me “…we just look at you as a woman, that’s who you are now.”

    Two other women at work have also told me how amazed they are watching me “blossom” into the woman I am now, that they can see that I’ve become so comfortable as the person I truly am – and yes! It is wonderful! And despite dealing with the challenges and difficulties, and the emotions experienced in doing so, I can tell you, there is no going back, I move forward on this journey,
    and I leave the past behind!

    Until next time, lots of hugs my wonderful girlfriends,

    Ms. Lauren M

      Yep Lauren, while the past must not be forgotten, I have found it best to leave it behind, where it was and how it was. I do not want to forget it because I always want it around in case I need to remember it to help me with something I’m currently dealing with. But so many people keep clinging to what happened in the past as if by doing so, something will change. Clinging to the past only keeps the frustration it caused, always present in our mind. So I try to reconcile the past, and keep it placed safely on that shelf in my mind.

      BTW, if you haven’t thought about it, your stories would probably make for a good Article. Maybe something you would want to consider. Hugs, Michelle
