Friend of mine once noted to me about the absurdity of only sharing the parts of our lives and selves that we are happy or pride about, only blasting out achievements like degrees and engagements and new jobs, presenting a very unnuanced, uncomplicated, and one-dimensional version of who we are. I’m hearing her voice in my head as I share this picture of me after a rough day - the culmination of four weeks actually - of severe self-doubt & a whole lot of anxiety that I can’t seem to overcome. It’s been overwhelming, distracting, debilitating, and has made me almost entirely non-functioning. Today I spent 16 hours trying to do work but only managing a total of 2 hours. I’m barely floating when I should be thriving. I know what I’m capable of, and this is not it. #2014tm #365tm #boilikeme #trans #transman #transmasculine #masculine #masculinity #anxiety #selfdoubt #vulnerable

Feeling great about my #workout today. My arms have never looked so #buff and I’m not even flexing. I needed this boost this week. Thank you @buffbutch for your coaching and support. #2014tm #365tm #boilikeme #selfie #selflove #egoboost #fit #fitness #workingout #buffbutch #muscles #trans #transman #transmasculine #masculine #masculinity #iamenough

In 2014 I will attempt to post at least one thing a day (thoughts, picture, quote, memory, etc) that contribute to how I view my own trans*masculinity, and what has formed it - at least that I’m conscious of. I will be posting these here: 365transmasculinedays2014.tumblr.com. In addition to the blog posts I will go for a #selfie a day. Excited to see where this goes. #ftm #trans #transmasculine #masculine #masculinity #transman #365TM #2014TM #boilikeme
