I met her here. I fell in love quicker than I think I ever have. What's not to love though? She's beautiful, kind, caring, and hard-working. She smiles in times of darkness and lights my world up like fireworks. I really want her to know how much I love her and could not do this without her. We've been dating for a month already. Funny how quickly time flies by am I right? I hope she still loves me
How do I put into words what it is that I am feeling right now? I am confused and wishing I could be just neutral.
I went shopping a little while ago, and on my way home my husband called me. He told me I should not have went shopping and spent money. I bought him some things for father's day and when I mentioned I got him some things, he became upset. It is because I don't have a job. He was upset with me about us having one income and going shopping.
He told me to not put up roadblocks into me finding a job, or doing what it is that I want to do. Professionalism is not something that comes easy for me, and with my mental health issues it's harder than that of a person without them. It is not an excuse to stay where I am, but it does not make it as easy as someone else's level of difficulty. I know everyone experiences difficulties. I swear it will be OK. I just have to find something that I love to do and go for it.
Today is a day of mixed emotions. It's driving me nuts... But it's something that I have to deal with. I am hoping for a better tomorrow since today is a Mix of a Mess and a Blessing.

"Happiness comes from within." I have heard before. However, what if it doesn't? What if it is something that must be created? Humm..
Well, Today is the day for you to choose happiness.

Saturday was our one month anniversary, and I made dinner and a friend helped me set it up with candles and flowers. Her daughter was our waiter and also helped me cook. She loved it and surprised me with a promise ring of my own after I had given her one the night before. She also brought a bag with the cutest gifts. We know that we'll be getting married in 2022, only waiting because her son and his fiancé are getting married next year and we want to honor their time. I've never been loved or accepted like this, and sometimes it's a bit overwhelming abs hard to process. It feels so natural, so at home when I'm with her, and home is where I most like to be. My depression is also in control, and normally my anxiety is too. I love her so much it hurts sometimes, and I'm sure glad she wanted to put a ring on it.
Peace, blessings, take good care of yourself. I always feel amazing in and after yoga 🧘♀️ & hot shower 🚿 & other things . Do, BE positive . One day at a time . Good vibes. Life is an up & down exciting, intriguing, unpredictable rollercoaster #Bipolar1Disorder #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Anxiety #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #PTSD #Love #Loveislove
I've been feeling pretty isolated. Most of my close friends are in the LGBTQ+ community, but none are trans. It's difficult to speak on my dysphoria and stresses when it comes to being a trans FtM teenager because they can't truly understand. Just looking for a little affirmation that there is a community of us. #trans #Transgender #LGBT #Loveislove #transmenaremen #transwomenarewomen
