I’ve made a few journeys of self-discovery over the years, and I’ve realized that my tastes are my own, and don’t fit most people’s ideas of what might be considered “normal”. I’ve since really stopped worrying about what other people think, and just concentrate on my own happiness. I’ve moderated my style choices down a peg or two, and no one seems to really mind. This is part of who I am, and that will never change. I am at harmony with my Yin and Yang sides as it were, and it feels very very right.
There have been friends who were not supportive, and that is their right, but it’s also my right to distance myself from them. There have been a number in recent years who have been supportive and/or treat me no different than anyone else, and I am happy for that as well.
As Popeye once said…I am all that I am, and that’s all that I am.
I’ve done average.
I’ve done punk/new wave.
I’ve done drag.
I’ve done all of them, and have come to one conclusion….style is a fruit salad that should be all mixed together, and enjoyed by all!
