If you follow me on Twitter you may be aware that I am a huge fan of Rupaul’s Drag Race. There have been four seasons and except for the one that’s just ending I have seen them all multiple times. I love these ladies.
There is something that Rupaul says often: “What other people think of me is none of my business.”
Basically, I need to be concerned with what I think of myself and if you have anything bad to say I don’t need to care – that’s on you. (Rupaul also makes a great sort of speech about this to Tammie at the reunion of season 1 which I tried unsuccessfully to find on youtube).
This is where I’m living right now. I have been very lucky over the past few years to have met people that like me for the person that I have grown to become. I have a wonderful family that loves me for being me.
And dammit, I have things I want to accomplish and I’m damn well going to try.
I try to be kind, I try to consider the feelings of those around me, but I’m not the kid who used to agree with everything her best friend said for fear of being ditched any more.
