I have been silent for some time now. It was not intentional. I have been doing a great deal of work, learning, experiencing, and changing over these past six months.
I have found therapy to be incredibly helpful in learning to process all of the transitions and the shadow-work that is necessary if I am to truly know myself and to live with integrity.
My understanding of my identity, gender and sexuality has become clearer. I have learned about what love means to me. To be loved and to love others is essential to my purpose in this life.
Loving others, engaging with who they are as human beings, and with the needs they have, the struggles they face, and the feelings they have about themselves and their lives, as well as with my own feelings, desires and needs, is a process well worth participating in.
The lessons of how we love are a part of the exploration of identity and that is what this blog was intended to be about. So I will return to my purpose in this endeavor, because I believe these are questions worth exploring.
