Self-Image/On The Shelf
I read this Reddit thing the other day they were like
“Would you ever date another trans guy”
I could just find the fucking thing and share it
But I wanna give you my impression
Lmfao I’m an artiste
I was like
Then I scrolled down
And this guy said
“I used to be like — I’m trans
And I like Cis people—
Until I dated another trans guy
And now I’m the happiest I’ve ever been”
*spits in excitement*
Then this other guy chimes in he’s like
“I’ve been dating a trans woman and
I’ve literally never been so happy”
I want what he’s having
Either of them
Maybe even a double order idgaf
My perspective on myself has changed a lot
Since changing my environment.
I am no longer afraid of lingering doubts and resentments.
I am wary and cautious of other people
But I am stronger now. I can handle things.
I am open to being
Maybe I didn’t want to date anyone trans before because
I didn’t feel lovable myself.
Now that I love him so much I wonder
Who else is out there waiting
Who else I’ve been putting on the shelf
But the other truth is I’m on
Other people’s shelves as well.
