Hello Internet,

A Heartfelt Letter To My Friends, Family, & Anyone Who Feels Like Reading

I was once told that the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. But the second best time is now. This idea has been floating around in my head a lot lately; specifically over these past couple months. I’ve been forced to recognize that fear does not breed happiness. No one has ever scared themselves into happiness; thats just not how that works.

If you know me even a tiny bit then you’re probably aware that I’m a fairly introverted person. So naturally I have a whole lot of fears in my life. And the longer I keep carrying these fears around, the worse my life will be. So, as Wade Wilson did in Deadpool, I’ve finally decided to say f**k it. I’m coming out of the proverbial closet.

I’m a girl

Not physically of course, but internally I’ve always identified as female. I’ve always been aware of this fact, but I first came to terms with what this truly meant around six years ago. Unfortunately I’ve feared judgement and rejection so much that these feelings have laid dormant inside my head — allowing them to slowly corrode away my entire being.

But I’m sick and tired of pretending to be something that I’m not. I don’t care that I wasn’t born physically a girl — that can be fixed more or less — I’m a girl and thats that. If you have any issues with this new information about me then I bid you adieu. Because if you can’t accept me then you don’t belong in my life. Unfortunately nothing is ever as simple as it seems at face value, or else life would be unbearably boring. If you have any questions feel free to politely message me and I’ll answer it to the best of my ability.

Thanks for reading and hopefully understanding,

Pace Marier
