6 SHOCKING Things I Can Promise The WORLD

Hate mail. I get it as often as I get the positive mail. Most often these "letters" from people voice disgust over my body, identity, profession, articulation during interviews, fashion choices, activities, and who I choose to date. I have learned over time that what I am receiving is not necessarily even hate mail--- its FEAR mail.

Fear that perhaps I will be a poor addition and influence to their lifestyles and community.

So for all the people that have written me FEAR mail- let me put your fears to rest by making you a few promises that might come as a surprise.

SHOCKINGLY no matter who I choose to share my body or heart with intimately or sexually- I will not lose my ability to respect YOU. To hold loving positive intent for you. To be of a charitable heart to you. To do good will for the world you live in.

AMAZINGLY no matter my ethnicity or how I choose to identify with my ethnicity- I will not lose my ability to respect YOU. To hold loving positive intent for you. To be of a charitable heart to you. To do good will for the world you live in.

INCREDIBLY no matter my economic state in life whether plentiful or skint- I will not lose my ability to respect YOU. To hold loving positive intent for you. To be of a charitable heart to you. To do good will for the world you live in.

MIRACULOUSLY no matter the land I choose to live in, country, state, province, city, town, village, continent- I will not lose my ability to respect YOU. To hold loving positive intent for you. To be of a charitable heart to you. To do good will for the world you live in.

STUNNINGLY no matter what pronoun I prefer to use, if I prefer any at all, I will not lose my ability to respect YOU. To hold loving positive intent for you. To be of a charitable heart to you. To do good will for the world you live in.

SURPRISINGLY no matter what I choose to wear- dress, suit, high heels, work boots, toga, parachute pants, turban, top hat, flower crown, mismatching socks, light up sneakers, flipflops, two piece bathing suit, swim trunks and nothing else, --- ANY GARMENT--  I will not lose my ability to respect YOU. To hold loving positive intent for you. To be of a charitable heart to you. To do good will for the world you live in.

I promise to YOU- all of you- that no matter these factors I will continue to operate with a loving heart and positive intent to make the world you live in a brighter and kinder world. I can guarantee that none of the above factors will change this--- so stop worrying about them. Stop worrying about how much money I earn, who I sleep with, what Im wearing, where Im living... they dont affect you. They dont matter. All that matters is that I am a HUMAN BEING wishing you WELL and doing acts of GOOD to make the world a better place.

Join me?

  1. What a beautiful place you have settled yourself into, what a beautiful place you have found in which to sit with the energy of those letters. I can feel the breathing that it took to for you to find this place, and you have expressed that place impeccably. How beautiful it is that you see the person behind the comments and know that what they need is acknowledgement and reassurance. And you stated that reassurance so elegantly, gently petting the reader with repetition. Lovely.
