All I Can Offer You Is Me

All I have to offer is me

Hello One and All and Welcome to a New Year. It really doesn’t matter what year it is, nor does it matter where you are from. I know we as Ambassadors of Crossdresser Heaven try to be uplifting and keep a positive spin on what goes on here, but along with the promises and hopes of the New Year comes the stark realities that we all encounter and must face on our own terms.

We listen to the stories in the chat room. We hear of the difficulties that we all encounter daily. The family issues. The relationship hardships. The decisions that rip us apart. The depression that we face when we face ourselves and we are frozen in time and space because we don’t want to hurt the ones we love. Praying that others will accept us. Wishing that the path that we chose won’t totally devastate us.

So many of the girls are looking for advice and a counselor to guide them on their journey. We open our hearts and minds and try to lead them by example. We encourage and try to give them options to help them make the decisions that make them who they are.
After a long day of listening and praying that I say the right thing to someone who is obviously in pain, you start to feel the humanity of the entire situation. We try to lead by example and call on our experiences to guide others. We hold out our hands knowing that the ones who actually should be there are invisible. We see in the members our own doubts and questions. We are human just as they are. We question our choices, our sexuality and ourselves. Not to do so is inhumane. If we do not look at ourselves through their eyes how can we help. If we do not share their dreams how can we face our own realities.

Unleash Your Inner Woman

Therefore, in conclusion, in this New Year, all I can offer you is all of me. I see myself in your footsteps. I hear myself in your tears. I long to be accepted just as you do. I pray you find the same Peace that I am praying for. I wish the next sunrise will bring you acceptance and hope.

All that I have written is based on those who I have met here on Crossdresser Heaven. The emotions are real. The pain is genuine. The rejection, the questions all come from those souls searching for an answer.

I thank those who had the faith in me and gave me this once in a lifetime opportunity to help not only those who are in need, but also help me find myself in the mist.

Best Wishes and a Happy New Year,
Joanna R.

    Oh yes…totally understand all of what you are saying.

    Like you I have “normal interests” (sighs) from Astronomy thru Zoology and points between along with these needs I have to dress and be the person I am inside.

    I actually was first taught to dress with and for 3 of my 17 aunts ALL of which were afraid of men (grandpa was a MEAN and Crazy drunk, tried to kill the daughters numerous times in his alcoholic funks!). Yeah, 17 girls in thae family – they stopped when the boy finally arrived (and he was effeminate ALL OF HIS LIFE!).

    I have been married twice (both deceased) but only the second (had been in show business, loved costumes, makeup, and more) accepted and enjoyed my interests in dressing as who I really am…in the privacy of the bedroom.

    I am of course seeking another to be with…a woman (of all genders – sighs) – that one special person with which we can be who we
    are inside (and the one who exists only in my own mind – sighs).

    I love this site for who is here, the advice and commiseration we all share, the care and love which is evident herein…the ability to be who we are without condemnation, the love and care which exists in us all.

    ,

    All that we can be is ourselves. If we can offer good advise, take it or leave it, but do not judge us. Yes, we are different, and being different is good because if we were all the same, life would be really boring. But you;re letter really touched my heart because it was filled with such honesty.

    Love always,

    Love it Joanne! It expresses the same thoughts an feelings I have had and tried to write about as well but does it in a more eloquent manner than I think have. Thank you for writing this which may help a troubled soul decide to open up about themselves.

    Luv,
    Cyn

    Beautifully written Joanna. You have encapsulated the feelings we all experience as we make our own way through our transgender life whilst at the same time trying to help others on their way.

    Thank you.
