Didn't turn down something down

Recommended Posts

Didn't turn something down yesterday,get to speak out at a local monologue with 11 other post op trans women.An employee of mine told a couple of her friend whom are organizing this about me and asked if I would do this.Looked them in the eye and told them yes.I want to tell my story which is an open book on my life even during my transition and when I had my GCS in January.They were happy I didn't turn this down.Told the news to my mom and 4 brothers and husband,they plan on going to it.Friends found out too,they told me I am doing the right thing and will help out other trans women that are struggling needing help and encouragement.Found out 3 of my friends whom are now post op trans women are doing it too.I am so excited about this and not looking back.Glad I get to let it out in a good way.First meeting is next week meeting the other 8 that are going to be in it and this is going to happen in June.

Good for you for doing this!  Public speaking, though it can be terrifying, is a great confidence-builder.  ANd sharing your experiences will help others on their journeys.  Way to go!

I admire your courage and agree that the information you have on your experiences can be invaluable to others who are not there yet.

I myself would have a hard time doing this in front of an audience.  I'm still shy and a bundle of nerves during public speaking.  Something I have battled since high school.

      Agree that jeans work well for you  Alexi.  Sweater too.  Whichever you feel personally more confident with when it's time to go.  I think you got this. Good luck with the interview!

      @Alex C   Just be yourself and you’ll do just fine. I personally like the outfit on bottom but I can’t see what you’re wearing below the blue sweater but the color suits you. The skinny jeans look good but it sort of depends on the job you’re taking. These are casual looks but ok for some job interviews.  I wish you the very best and hope that you are successful in getting this position.   My Best, Susan R🌷

      Thanks everyone! I told my mom and she didn't have much of anything nice to say. My dad was pretty good about it though. I'm really loving these forums!! 💞😁

      Hi Natasha, welcome to the forum. Your journey sounds very familiar to me and many others posting here as VIcky pointed out.  As you by now realize, these feelings don’t go away all by themself. Dealing with it head on works so much better than burying everything.  Eventually, the issues just show up unannounced at the worst possible time.  The cycle is the only thing predictable about it. We’re here to help in any way we can.  Until you can get in to see a therapist which likely won’t be right away, feel free to get plenty of very helpful advice here. You might even meet a few new friends along the way. Thank you for your candid introduction.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I have my 1st job interview 2mor as Alex the transgender. I am bit nervous I never not been alex the guy before. I not using a wig ,very natural make up, no dress or heels . I am going through some outfits and this is one a choice. would like some feed back. But I understand that I am not the most popular one on this site. To tell the truth I don't like chat rooms and this the only one I belong too. Heck, I don't even use facebook that much. But I would really appreciate some feed back here so I don't make a complete fool of myself.I am submit one with out a wig and one with just in case

      Ouch Sometimes I... <__< >__> sometimes I wear boxers   (Don't laugh, they are surprisingly comfy when I'm at home! It confuses the heck out of my spouse though XD )
    • Zeda
      Oh, absolutely. My spouse has been a rock in my life (really, we've been each other's) and has protected me when I couldn't muster up the strength our courage to protect myself.    Zay-Duh is how I pronounce it, but people can call me Ze for short, or if they are practicing non-binary pronouns. If that is still tough, I also accept Your Highness. And yup, I think this is my fourth account over the years (2008/2009, then 2010, then 2017, and now).  By the way, I looked up that word, "propitious," and I am still not sure what it means ^^' Thanks, it's a French bastardization of the Greek letter zeta Hi, thank you! I saw you mentioned my old account in a happy birthday post a few years ago, so thank you! (and it was a low-stress birthdy, btw!) Hi Yeah, I'm just that cool 😎 Honestly, it's really cool that there are still a lot of familiar faces here, like Vicky and Carolyn (and JJ, though it looks like he isn't very active these days).

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Natasha.  I encourage you to look around at the various forums and post wherever you like, and ask any questions that come to mind.  You'll find friendship and understanding here.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      I meant trans as in transgender.

      I’m sorry to hear that I hope they will let you go to an outside consultant. I could only imagine how antsy your getting i would be well past that.  I looked at planned parenthood but they have pretty much outlawed them in the state of Missouri. So I’m stuck calling around to find a endocrinologist that’s taking patients. Then hopefully they take insurance. Problem is there I have my insurance with the union I’m in and I really don’t want to out myself to them because most likely I will be outed to my employer.
