"We are One"

So many of you know what I'm talking about. Earlier today I had this really strong feeling that I should tell my cousin about my transition. He and I are very close and more like brothers than cousins. Thats what made it hard to hide the real me from him any longer. Just like when I've told other people in my family I was scared to death. But he is different because he knows me as a harley riding, hotrod building, manly man. I was worried about how this would effect our relationship or if we would even have one after I told him. So I decided I better call him and find out what he was doing and the type of mood he was in and if it was a good time.I told him I had something major I needed to tell him and that I felt like he needed to know. After I talked to him I headed to his shop with my heart beating as hard as it could all the way there. Once I got there I walked in and as you can imagin he had quite a shocked look on his face. But after the initial shock went away we had a very good talk that lasted 3hrs. Towards the end of the conversation I realized how lucky I really am. He looked at me and told me it didn't matter if I'm a man or a woman we are family and no matter what he's there for me. Just shows that some of the people you think wont except it can really suprise you.

So happy for you :) This just reminded me of a saying... I used to live on the ice practically playing hockey and my team adopted the motto 'no guts, no glory'... what I mean here is that I think you were really brave Jamie and it's great to hear how well it worked out!

I'm so happy for you sweetie. It's funny how some of the ones we think will reject us turn out to be the most accepting. Just goes to show you never know unless you put yourself out there.

Huggz, Lisa
