Truth and integrity

Posted on januar 8, 2011


I am going to write my way through the Quaker Testimonies, to reflect on what they mean to me and were I should focus to grow.

Truth and integrity. This is who I am. This is the reason I am. If I did not believe in the truth I have found or have integrity, I would be an other than who I am. Or be dead.

To go through a gender transition is to practice integrity and trusting the truth you know from within. Without these two, there would be no transgendered people. When the world only sees a gendered body, God sees the human within. We learn to trust that of God in our selves despite everyone telling us the opposite. That is the biggest gift of being transgendered. I know a lot of non-trans people struggle with trusting God, believing in what they cannot see.
