Now that I am considered “well” by mu doctors it is time to celebrate it. My bday is coming up really soon so there is no better timing to step out of my comfort zone than this month.
I have to keep telling myself how will things change if I don’t.. 1 week ago
At least daily. 1 month ago
I decided it was finally time to seek new challenges so I decided to leave a job that fostered me and which provided me with a lot of support
- and one in which I excelled - and start in the field of my study. I knew it would be difficult and that I would probably never fidn such a great environment as the one I worked in, but I never realized how hard it would actually be.
I`m starting to settle into my new job, but have found that I have entered a very negative and cynical environment. While I let it all in and let it affect me during the first two week, I had a moment of realization when I discovered that I would lose myself and my joie de vivre if I allowed myself to indulge my colleagues in their negativity, so I disengaged from that and insist on remaining extremely professional. My colleagues seem disappointed but first the first time in two weeks, I feel good about myself and can actually sleep. So I`ve done the right thing, regardless of how they feel about it. I refuse to allow myself to engage in petty office politics and firmly believe we can all do better than that. I guess time will tell if my colleagues will take my league. 2 months ago
I know I need to do this for so many reasons, but the what-ifs and fear have such a hold on me.
I’m so used to playing it safe by going to familiar places(“safe” places I can go alone & feel comfortable) or having someone to accompany me to social events so I wouldn’t feel awkward. Now that my social circle is shrinking(because my of friends married lives, starting families & relocation) I need to make some adjustments and put myself out there and make things happen with my life.
Overall I just need get rid of this fear that has kept me in this rut. 4 months ago
Last night, I was (finally) telling GF about my position in the gender spectrum & how I want to deal with it. A truely open conversation opening the way to a deeper level in our relationship and exploring further who I am.
Excited :) 5 months ago
I’m thinking about getting a swimsuit to go swimming again. I’m not really afraid of swimming, I’m afraid of showing so much of my body. Swimsuits make me very uncomfortable, but I think I can get over it. I’ve only just recently started showing my arms. Maybe sometime I’ll graduate to shorts, too! I’m excited to start getting more confident. 8 months ago
since I feel I’m back on my feet again.
I’ve traveled, met new people, started handing out resumes etc and I had fun while doing it. I wish the same to all of you too <3 9 months ago

Ok so I already discussed signing up to a girls mentor-ship program accidentally last time. So I get to meet my mentor yesterday, she seems like an awesome girl. She’s 28 years old, working, and just a sweetheart :)
We went out with her sister (the counselor) and another mentor (who’s menty* didn’t show). We went to an art show/ music/ silent auction fundraiser/ food tasting event. It was pretty awesome, we took silly pictures in costumes.
I haven’t gone out with girls in like over 2 years! That felt so nice, and I got to wear one of my many pairs of heels I haven’t gotten to wear before.
All and all very good experience. I’m looking forward to regaining my confidence and social skills. :) 10 months ago
For 2 years, I did at least 3 things every day out of my comfort zone. It really helped. 10 months ago
