I know this caption’s a bit depressing, but I’ve been emailing back and forth with a friend who’s not all that different from the narrator of this caption.  She is an older person who spent much of her life denying who she was.  Recently, she decided to transition, which I thought was an incredibly inspiring thing.  She’ll probably blush when she sees this, but I thought it was worth mentioning.  However, it brought to mind how she must have felt for most of her life, which is where this caption came from.  I can only hope that, one day, everybody who feels this way will take the leap and become who they were meant to be.
