As far as the weekend went, we had another Cincinnati Witches Ball committee meeting to go to plus the ever exciting weekly trip to the grocery store. Both went without a hitch. I switched up my outfits by wearing my paisley soft leggings I love so much with my long red sweater and boots of course.
As I mentioned in my last post, the two “C”s (Comfort and Confidence) mean so much when combating my gender dysphoria. Again, as I mentioned, I didn’t realize how deep my dysphoria ran. Perhaps it all stems from a few highly unsuccessful feminine trips in the public eye years ago when I first began to explore a new scary but exciting world. Basically, this was back in the 80’s when times were very different. Most of my problems were self created to be truthful.
Basically, I made the mistake of dressing for men and not women. Specifically, I dressed too trashy and drew too much unneeded attention. I was stubborn though and figured since I didn’t get to go out much, I needed to go all out and get the most bang for the buck. All of it resulted into too many mini skirts and high heeled days.
The only time I was really successful was when I dressed professionally and happened to blend with other cis women dressed the same way.
Which leads me full circle to the night I went out to purposely be a woman and blend in with other women getting off work from a local upscale mall. I was scared to death as I made my way to the upscale bar and ordered a cocktail. The first lesson I learned was, I lived. The second lesson was (after I relaxed) was I lived and actually felt very good doing it. The problem was I felt so good I knew I would experience more problems going back to my male life.
Little did I know, years later I would still be experiencing much of the same feelings.
Enough of me though. Thanks again to all of you for visiting!
