To truly be myself

Someone wrote…

I do not seek or expect perfection in other people, because I do not want other people to seek or expect perfection in me. I’m also a mess when it comes to even the idea of relationships.

I recently met someone that I really like. I mean REALLY LIKE. So, wanting so very much to truly be myself with someone and let them make up their mind about me (judge me) without any BS from me, I told this person everything. I told this person that I identify as androgyne or ‘both genders at the same time, at least on the inside’. I was scared, but I did it.

This person looked me in the eye, shrugged a little, and said, “Okay.” Since then, this person has told me a few times that they like me. That they REALLY LIKE me.

Sometimes I find myself thinking that this person just might be ‘perfect’ for me and I might be ‘perfect’ for them. Talking about mushy, relationshipy stuff is one hurdle that both of us have yet to fully climb over, if that ever happens, but I feel very accepted for who I really am. All that I am.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
