Bruce Jenner and that whole thing...

I didn't plan on watching the Bruce Jenner interview with Diane Sawyer.  I just happened to work the night before and spending my usual lazy day in bed post night shift I saw that it was on the schedule.  I had to watch.  I need to see how others handle it when a trusted loved one reveals such news.  

If you don't know why then refer back to this post:

There are three parts if your really bored!!

The best news ever!  While I watched it, I realized I was just thinking in the same way I was BEFORE.  Before I was lied to and fraudulently treated by my ex husband.    YEAH!!!

What does that mean?  Well, I feel like it's been forever and I'm sure my friends and loved ones are probably thinking, "get over it".  I know I have wanted to move on forever!  Everyday I'm closer but lets face it, it's a slow go and I will never be the same.  But there is one thing that I am finally getting past.  The link between my ex, the anger and transgender.  

Lets face it, I'm not mad about the transgender issue and my ex.  I'm mad because of how and when he told me and the actions that preceded and followed.  I'm not going to get into it because I think it gives them life and power but it had nothing to do with the actual act of transitioning.  

I watched Bruce Jenner and I had the type of thoughts I had before.  

-He's (She's) not hurting anyone, let him be happy.
-He (She) should be able to be themselves.

And on and on and on.

In the last 10 minutes of the program I was thrilled.  There is hope for my angry confused and jacked up past couple of years.  I want to be back to that soul that accepted people as they are.  

Like I heard tonight, "If they are a good person before transitioning they will be a good person after".  Bruce Jenner tried to be honest to his spouses.  He was also struggling in a time that was SO far away from accepting differences along with being in the limelight.  

Most poignant is all the "I'm sorry" he said.  It's OK to be sorry that someone is hurt, even if your intentions are true.  

So maybe I can put this life experience aside and start judging people at face value.   hehehe

It's not like I'm going to TOTALLY change!

Blog on.......

Next blog I think I'll chit chat about running and trying to run this Marathon next month. AHHHHHH!!!!!


  1. Hi Kathee, thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing that sobering experience with your patient. I saw a bit of the Bruce Jenner interview and it made me sad, but something he said stuck with me, when he was talking about God giving everyone certain great qualities, but also something to struggle with, and being transgender was the thing he'd had to struggle with in his life. I'm sorry you had to go through that tough situation in your life, and that this brought it all back up to the surface. Hang in there!

    1. I thought he made some great points. Difficult to understand the struggle. Thank you!

  2. wowsers a good read. so much processing for you still. Yes the day by day it gets easier is is the "get over it" nonsense. you will do that in your own time and own way. Keep on keepin on! and hey...a marathon next month. (insert curse word here) is that awesome or holy shit? :-)

    1. Holy Shit. It's holy shit. My first marathon First time is always a little scary. ;)
