It was both frightening and liberating because I could finally be in charge of my own body, rather than sitting back and feeling lost in the void of having a genetic cancer syndrome

I’m trying to reclaim my body whilst saying goodbye to it at the same time. Life is a series of paradoxical nightmares.

If I’m not fighting for my rights, who will continue to champion for us?

I wanted to document this story because when I have children of my own, I want the world to be better than where it is today. And I also want to be vulnerable about my struggles, because I truly believe that vulnerability can be a source of empowerment for others feeling the same way or going through the same thing.

Being in this masculine state for prolonged periods tires out a woman, and vice versa a man will feel unwell and out-of-balance by resting in his feminine for too long

Why is there so much contempt for the strong man stereotype and the men who adhere to traditional roles of masculinity? Why are powerful men automatically depicted as all-toxic? Ascribing an attribute like “toxic” to one gender – isn’t that a vast generalisation? Isn’t that … sexism?

It all made sense why about three days a month I genuinely believe everyone is talking badly about me, that no one likes me, or that I am annoying everyone

It’s also to blame for sometimes being sure the friends I have only pretend to be my friends. I am so hard on myself and legitimately think I cannot do anything right, my irritability would add to that thinking, so I would get irritated and on-edge. Unfortunately, sometimes it goes deeper than irritability and lack of confidence, this is when my most intense and anxious thoughts are constant. It is when I imagine my life without the people I love or I ask the horrific question: would I be missed if I was gone?

Don’t be too kind, people will walk all over you,
Don’t be too mean, people won’t walk anywhere near you.
Don’t be too intelligent, people will feel threatened by you,
Don’t be too dumb, you’ll be threatened by others, it’s true.
Don’t be too intuitive, people will think you’re woo-woo.

Most moms who give the random unsolicited advice have good intentions and mean no harm

Keywords: tea time

You can rather listen brush it off or you may just learn something. I remember the first year of parenting I’d take whatever adult conversation I could get seeing that most of my time was spent juggling my final year of college while pumping around the clock. I think we all can agree that that there’s no wrong and right. Its all trial and error but there is light at the end of the tunnel. My only advice to pass along is for when your time comes as the mom with the advice don’t drop to many gems at once.
