It's funny, but for the past several weeks or so, my female dressing has taken a minimalist phase. When my wife died, and all the flurry of activity that accompanies a death in the family quieted down, I went on a buying binge of sorts. I was aided by the girls in the chatroom, especially Andrea, but also Penelope and others on what exactly I needed to get. I also had my own wishlist and pretty much filled out a wardrobe of sorts. For the most part, I am happy with what I bought, and it is fun to see all my feminine wear hanging in my closet. But now, instead of spending my evening hours getting all dressed up and taking pictures and chatting, I am content to dress simply and read or watch some TV or catch up on my paperwork. I am also watching my budget, but even so, I don't have any great urge to buy any more at this point. I'm sure that will change, and I realize that I may come across something that I must absolutely have to have, but for now I'm content.

"To be content" is all that matters, whether it's wearing clothing or not, full time or intermittently, and what styles and so forth. The important thing, I think, is to recognize and accept that as a transgender person - not matter how you express your gender - is simply that you're a valid example of normal human diversity. You're certainly welcome here no matter what or how you express yourself or feel.

Hey MichelleLea :) 

It's always nice to be content. In the final analysis you just need to be true to yourself and focus your priorities however you see fit. 

Some members of the forum (and the chat room) will drop out for awhile because their priorities have changed -- only to re-emerge some time later. I don't see a problem with that.

Now, I don't want to see you drop out. We enjoy having you here. But that would be ok if you needed to.
