Self-care is not allowing yourself to underestimate your own potential
Today I attended a business start up course. It’s the first “official” thing I’ve done for starting my freelance writing business and I had a severe attack of impostor syndrome this morning. That little critic in my head prattled on about me not being good enough, what the hell did l think I was doing etc. I sat down, took some deep breaths and reminded myself of all the reasons why I’m taking this path and that l have potential and worth like anyone else. The day was amazing and l now feel even more empowered to push ahead. Thank goodness I am now more able to shove the inner critic to one side and champion my own ability and potential.

For the last 7 months since moving to Eastbourne, with all that’s been going on with my mum and with my own mental and physical health, my life has been somewhat on hold. Recently, I decided it was time to pick up where I left off last year and get back out dating.
I have been single for a while, its not easy to date when you are transgender. To be honest, its often felt like it would be easier to just not bother and get a cat instead! Self-care is in realising I am worthwhile and lovable and that I owe it to myself to be brave and date!
Today, I had a wonderful date with a cisgender male for whom my being trans was a complete non issue. He is such a breath of fresh air! We spent 8 hours together and almost kissed at the station! I have been on a high since, and I have discovered he feels the same! We have arranged a second date!
