Death Bed Regret



Easy it is to fear regret when making a life altering decision.  Parents dread their kids will regret transitioning.  Even transgender people worry of regretting their decisions.   I know I did:  What if taking testosterone is a mistake?  What if I miss living as a woman?

But let me ask you:

What if you regret not doing it? 

Envision spending your whole life wondering what could have been.  Imagine looking back over all the days, months, years wishing you had taken that chance.  Picture you are laying on your death bed, curled up with remorse of having never lived as your authentic being.

Decisions now are changeable; on your death bed, they will not be.

Often I wonder how life appears when you are at the end of it, looking back.  What will you see?
