As someone who's new to the AB spectrum and coming from a MtF transgender lifestyle I'm starting to look at different days and who I am day by day. During the last week I've been sick, congestion and green phlegm (not to be graphic) and I spent the week in a pull up curled up with my plushy dog, but now that I'm feeling better, its back to lace and taking care in my appearance.
I guess this could be said the same for everyone going from their normal everyday persona to the in-home persona.
Now looking at the AB attraction has a lot of parallels to my journey of self acceptance with cross dressing. If anyone is coming to grips on cross dressing or even the AB lifestyle just remember, first and foremost you have to accept yourself, and be proud that you have something that makes you different from others around you, because you need to accept yourself and keep your head high because you are someone's example. I found out that a co- worker has a younger brother who is a MtF cross dresser coming to terms with his lifestyle.
Keeping this in mind as that example I have to remember to be a normal everyday person who just happens to cross dress and show the world I'm not a freak. So I guess all that being said I want to say. You need to be happy with yourself because in the end if your with someone or not, you have to enjoy the person who you are. Love yourself and others will love you.
Just a thought.
