Jodie, thank you, thank you, thank you for recommending the Ted Talk by Cici! So encouraging, so truthful. & she is so beautiful–what a smile! And the 2 words of advice are profound.
For anyone reading this reply, here’s the link to the
Ted Talk Jodie recommended. It’s by a transwoman named CiCi, entitled “The Hardest Thing in the World.” Don’t miss it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fw30yjccnD4
While I’m recommending things, I HIGHLY recommend this book: “Sissy” by Jacob Tobia. Like CiCi this author brilliantly traces his journey of self-discovery, which in the end is all about accepting one’s self. I’m finding myself in his words over and over, even though, of course, he is SO different from me.
