Lets Talk: Books I don’t want to be read and why I don’t want to.
Based on Whitneys blog post and live tweets I wanted to read The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons, but I really do not want to spend money on this book. The more I think about it, I feel like I’m already spending too much time on this book. At the same time, I want to share her thoughts on that book, just to spread awareness. I’ve heard of this book several times, and thought about reading it myself. But then I saw Whitney tweeting about it, and read her post on it, that I really don’t want to. Whitney shows excerpts of the book, with highlighted texts to give proof of what she says. Personally, Whitney’s strong view, with the highlighted extracts she provides, is enough to put me off buying/borrowing and reading this book.
Lets Talk: Queer Stuff
On Reddit, I found a really interesting article about five questions trans people may be scared of asking. I identified massively with these questions, finding myself asking myself all of them constantly.
Am I really sure of this? Is this really who I am? -Who I should be? What if I’ll regret transitioning? Will this really make me happy? What about my mum? My future?
Truth is, thinking about all of my doubts, I now actually think that I have a future, and deserve a future. More often than not (despite not often enough), I realise I do deserve happiness and the path I am on now is bringing me more happiness than any other path could. I’m still confused, and every day, I doubt myself and my choices so many times. At the same time, this feels right.
