can things get better

I remember that first day I met her and she showed me her notebook full of first sentences. She never wrote beyond a first sentence because she was afraid that the second sentence might be ugly. She wasn’t wrong. There’s always a possibility that things can go from good to bad, from beautiful to ugly, from healthy to sick, but there’s also a possibility of the opposite happening. Things can get better too.

An incomplete list of things people have suggested will ‘cure’ my cancer.

* Red capsicums (red bell peppers for non-Australians)
* Alkaline diet
* Imagining eating my tumour until Magical Remission
* Cannabis oil
* Going ‘keto’ (my sister, who lives by keto, laughed uproariously for a thousand years when she heard this).
* ‘Not most kinds of Reiki but that one kind of Reiki.’

I do not look forward to adding to this as the months progress. e.e


This is my dad on my 21st birthday. It has taken him 21 years to call me his son. It’s taken 21 years for him to tell me that he’s proud of me. It’s taken him 21 years to tell me that he loves me. It’s taken us 21 years to love each other.

When I first came out as transgender my dad didn’t understand and so he reacted with hatred, anger and disappointment. He shamed me for my gender expression and we had to cut off communication.

But after my chest surgery in December of 2016 he finally opened his eyes to how happy I finally was. He made the decision to attend rehab and therapy to better himself and focus on his own mental health issues in order to restore our relationship.

Since my surgery he’s been nothing but loving and supportive. He always calls me Liam and uses the correct pronouns. He calls me his son and we’re more connected now then ever.

In these photos I’m opening a birthday present from my dad. His present was a black ball cap that read “The Jet-Lag Club”. He explained that it was a bar in Japan only for international flight crews. A bar that his father had gone to and he had frequently gone to as well. He got the hat from being such a frequent customer, but it has closed since and now there is no possible was to get one of these hats. He told me it’s his most prized possession. And then he handed it to me and said…

“It’s yours now. It’s tradition, from father to son.”

Remember that people can grow and change. They can accept and love even after hatred emerged. Remember that people can see who you are. Don’t give up just yet, things can change and they can get better.

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness

Trans people who are pre-transition/early on in their transition:

This is NOT forever. You will get to where you’re supposed to be one day. You HAVE to hold on. I promise, just hold on. Hold on and things will get better. Maybe the only thing you can do right now is to hold on, but just remember that you’re strong, even if you really don’t feel like you are. If you weren’t strong there would be no chance that you’d still be here. This was never, ever, ever your fault ever and you deserve happiness just like everyone deserves happiness. Just hold on. You’ll get there. Everything is going to be okay. I promise. You just HAVE TO hold on.

i wish i could do things right and i wish i had motivation to get up


*cough cough*

The beautiful thing about life is that you can always change, grow & get better. You aren’t defined by your past. You aren’t your mistakes.
