The Choices We Make

Recommended Posts

Carolyn Marie

I know this Forum is meant for folks to post their own work, but there is no rule that says you can't link to someone elses. This is my favorite poem, dating back to high school. Nowadays it has taken on such a profound meaning to me, because of the choices I have made in my life

But I agree with many who say that Frost didn't mean to imply that one choice is better than another, but that each choice we make is good in its own right, and that regret of our choices is folly.

Anyway, here it is, Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken."

This is one of my favorite poems too Carolyn. I often quote "path less travelled" in reference to this poem.

Love.

Quoted it to myself since grade school. And it has acquired more and meaning as I made choices and went further down the roads I chose.

Thank you Carolyn for reminding me.

      Hi Teri Anna! Welcome to Transpulse. I'm glad you're here!   Lots of love and a big welcome hug, Timber Wolf 🐾

      I've heard that you can lose a little because of spine curvature from a rotating pelvis, but three inches seems like a lot (insert crude joke here). I'd get myself checked out just to be sure.   Hugs!

      That's unacceptable behavior @_x.anime.x. Vicky is absolutely right. You were assaulted by someone who should have been loving, supportive and accepting. You're better off without him.   Might I suggest a therapist or a sexual assault survivors support group? I'm on the wrong side of the Atlantic, so I don't really know what's available in your area. The big takeaway is that this is all on him. You were frightened and you were attacked. You didn't do anything wrong. He's the bad guy.   We're always here if you need to talk (in a PG-13 manner because rules).   Hugs!

      I have got a degenerative spinal condition that my doctor knows about. 3" is a lot to lose in seven months though. Nobody told me to expect anything like it.   Maybe I should make a GP appointment to see if they can tell me what's going on.

      The early days were hard for me.  Most folks were great but a few were a bit of a pain despite all i could do or explain.  Susan is spot on.  A bit of time was all it took and then i was just another person and no longer an oddity.  Hang in there it seems you are doing everything right!  One day you will realize its no longer an issue at all.   Hugs,   Charlize

      thank you Kay  have to tell you a little story about  Kansas  the first time i saw them was not longer after their first album. they and Queen were double billed at my college U of Toledo. i was working on the college newspaper and guitarist Ric Williams came in our office asking how to get to the dressing room. we told him and as he was walking out, a drunk college kid asked him where the bathroom was and he told him to just stand in the corner of the hall and piss. no onw would notice .

      I am pretty sure I want to start HRT at some point (but therapy first).  I am currently not considering bottom surgery but I assume it could possibly change later.  I am more like @SaraAW and that I would want to be on HRT long enough to feel/see the results before I commit beyond. But great question Shay.  Thanks for asking!   One of my all time favorite bands.  I saw them in concert back in the 70s in their heyday.  It was awesome❣️
    • Shay
      you are on your way... oncw i bottomed out and realized i need to love myself before i could love others i think the aura of that drew others to me and things got better and thank god for that or i am certain i would no longer be on planet earth. i am so glad to hear your progress.  mental hugs, Shay (Heather)

      Did someone take a few inches out of the middle of your tape?  Over years (72) i've lost perhaps an inch due to aging and spine compression.  I have never heard of skeletal changes due to HRT.  I would recommend seeing your doctor as this is perhaps a medical issue.   Hugs,   Charlize

      wow...definitely a serious musician...how cool.. 
    • KayC
      @Lexi C I really like your new name.  Really fits you I think❣️

      I'm 3" inches shorter than I was at the start of this year. Is this normal? It seems a lot to me. Bear in mind I'm 44.   Do trans men grow?   Not complaining at all! 😄
