Regrets

I am dubious of people who say that they have "no regrets." 

No one is perfect. We all make mistakes and I admit that I have made choices and decisions that I regret.

In retrospect, I cannot believe how long I hid in the closet because I thought I was too big to present as a credible woman.

When I finally got out of the closet it was so anticlimactic that I was incredulous. I quickly learned that I either passed or that most civilians minded their own business when they saw a man dressed as a woman.

"Youth is wasted on the young" is so apropos in my case. I should have exited the closet and experienced the world as a woman much sooner. 

So do as I say, not as I did. Get out of the closet, grab your purse and take a walk on the female side of the street. You won't regret it.

    I agree. Most of my youth was spent hiding. I'd love to have that time back, to experience life as a 20 something woman.
    Don't delay, ladies - step out tall and proud!

    1. If I was out in my 20's to the degree that I am in my 60's, methinks I would have been full-time in my 30's, 40's, 50's, etc.
