During group therapy last month, we discussed the importance of “letting go”. As trans people, we hold on to so much resentment and sense of “being persecuted”, some real, a lot of it imagined!

I am generally clueless about fashion. I can’t tell from midi’s & mini’s! 😛
I have a pretty active lifestyle. My job requires me to move around with a camera and haul equipment all over the place. My passions include extended roadtrips, camping and wildlife oriented trips. The formal events I have to attend include book launches, exhibitions and the like.
What is the look I am going for? Well definitely not Jessica Rabbit! 😛
Would appreciate tips from the fashionistas…!
In Group Therapy we talked of “finding the woman within” and “bringing her out”. Interesting exercise! And across the last month, I have finally found the woman within! I call her “Maaya”. It feels exhilarating! Its like a second birth almost! The woman inside, trapped for so long, is finally free!
And today, as I stand on the threshold of my transition, I would like to talk of my journey this far. I hope others who are going through a similar challenge find this helpful. I also hope therapists who work with people like us read and take some learning from this.
A lot of my interactions with Transwomen have centered around discussions about physical appearance. There is very little real discussion on the other aspects of transitioning to womanhood. I have found it hard to reconcile with this.
Are all transwomen this shallow?
