WarrenG : (27 October 2014 - 07:54 PM) Loved this! Hater and homophobic got shoved down where he belongs for causing trouble and being a close minded baboon at a national airport. The man was accused of being a "***" by the homophobic buffoon just because he had a pink shirt on. Ridiculous! Glad to see those around them jump to his defense and protect the man in the (rather adorable) pink shirt ^_^ Made me smile

It get's Better

Posted by MegganRS , 13 June 2012 · 263 views

I wrote this some time back as a letter to many of my friends on Facebook to clue them in on who I am.  I also wrote it as an encouragement to anyone else that may be traveling the same road I am.  We all have issues, problems or obstacles that keep us from moving forward in our lives.  It is only by the grace and mercy God has shown me that I have gotten as far as I have.  No matter what journey you find yourself on, I hope I can lend some encouragement along your way.

You might have seen some of the videos from some famous athletes, politicians or other celebrities.   Well, I thought it would be important to add my voice.  I’m nobody famous.  I’m just someone who understands that your teenage years can seem to be some of the most difficult times of your life.   It took a life time to come to the point of accepting myself.  Don't make the same mistake I did.

ALL through high school and for many years after, I denied the world to see who I really was.  As a good friend once told me, it wasn’t so much as I 'came out', but I finally let the world in.  I finally summoned the courage to let the world know the really me.  You see, I wasn’t born Meggan Renee, I was born Mark Thomas.  

Growing up, I truly feared what people might say or even do if they found out the real me, I did my best to hide that I wanted to be a girl.   Feeling different kept me somewhat isolated from the other kids – don’t get me wrong – I had my friends and those are the people that have stuck with me for over 30 years, even when I told them I was transitioning.

All through elementary school, I was the smallest in my class. That alone made me target of bullies from kindergarten all through my senior year of high school. There were times I faked being sick and went home from school just to avoid the bullies waiting for me between classes.  In high school, my Christian faith was also a source of ridicule.  With all of that going on, I never had the courage to speak up and let people know I felt different – I didn’t want the bullying to get worse.

Trust me when I tell you that depression and the thought of suicide was a constant in my life.  I felt many times that if I just walked off and disappeared, no one would miss me.  In my adult years, I dealt with Anorexia and Bulimia, just to feel I had some control in my life.   But I have just now started to truly learn that it is not the good and easy times in our life that strengthens us.  It is the storms in our lives that help us learn to live.  God gives us strength to endure and over come the obstacles on the road of our lives.  Many times, that strength God provides us comes in the way of family, friends, teachers, pastors, and even professional councilors.  

I want to tell you, You are NOT alone!!  There are so many people around you that want to help if you are feeling isolated, different, or alone.  There are three words I want you to remember -  It gets better!




I enjoyed your post. It probably will help others to see they are not alone.
I know what it is like to be a small guy and picked on even though the transsexual issues I am not familiar with.
I am thankful for that from what you describe.
Take care.
