Encouragement can go long way toward fulfillment of goals. Kind words can spur us to complete our tasks before us. I am pleased that transgender people are making progress in gaining equality. Ten years ago, this seemed like a pipe dream. Yet with all the progress, there are many who still need to be encouraged.

There are folks who need to know that they are loved and accepted for who they are. There are some who need encouragement to accept themselves. No amount of progress can satisfy the person who cannot love themselves. I'm not talking about a proud and arrogant front to cover up insecurities and self-loathing. I'm talking about heart that is at peace with others and themselves.

To that someone who feels they're alone; you are not. To that person who has dreams and goals, be encouraged. You may see the importance of what you are doing but others do. What encouraged me in my gender journey was the many stories of other people who went through the struggles I did. Above, remember that you are loved.
