Hi Danielle,

I'm really glad there are people sticking up for you - it will make all the difference in the end I'm sure.
It is fantastic that you've got friends and suitors on your side and if you keep on living your life in such a positive way I think more people will respond in kind.
Most people don't aspire to negativity or negative people, so I think its more than likely that some of the people who are undecided will probably be drawn to your bright smile and positive attitude at some point.  And while it's impossible to entirely weed out negative people from your life (it is for me...) It will be great in the future for you to know that most of the people around accept you for all that you are.

Thinking of you,
Love,

Sonja.

8:30pm Wednesday night:
Hey all... thank you everyone for your supportive comments today after you read my big update and I met with the coffee shop owner at lunch time.  I really appreciate my Susan's Place friends. 

Actually I think that today was a good day for me... sure there was quite a bit of negativity that came out today and unsavory things were said about me but this was a wonderful thing finding out who my real friends are. 

I felt that was neat that the nice man told that lady to shut up when she was so belligerent and making derogatory remarks about me , I know who he is, he is a truck driver that comes to the coffee shop just about every day and we have had some casual and friendly conversations over coffee from time to time.

Initially I was very saddened when I heard about Suitor #1 and his woman friend that was demeaning me for being a trans-woman...  I am glad that I found out now instead of later if I had invested more romantic interest in him.  Good riddance to him .....and now I am retiring the Suitor #1 designation.

Oh and @Jayne01 ... I did indeed go to the gym and blew off some steam.  It seems that without me saying a word that my gym girls knew all about what happened at the coffee shop this morning,,, oh yeah, and my dental hygienist suitor #4 is one of the ladies in my gym group today.... so I did not talk about my suitor issues but we talked about everything else.  But they probably knew anyway... remember, it's a small town and all of them frequent the coffee shop.

I love my next door coffee shop... it is the town's gossip center, meet and greet center.... and the owner and the employees there are all my friends and supporters so if somebody goes in there and starts saying bad things about me, that accountant next door... they will get an earful from the owner of the coffee shop and a lot of the other customers and employees there that know of me.

One can't get away with much in a small town like this but the good part is that if one makes friends here, there is a good chance that are usually very supportive and loyal friends.

I am done with dinner.... and will be getting ready for bed in another 2  hours or so.  I think I will put on my night clothes and sit down to relax with a book or perhaps some TV watching.   I put on my propane stove to warm up a little, it is cold outside.... I just looked at the thermometer and it is now 39 degrees and falling.... burrrr.

I will probably write more tomorrow... 
Again, I feel quite good about today.... I am a happy camper!!!
Hugs to all,
Danielle

I was very relieved reading you post in the middle of the night (Thanks Spiro).

I am very happy to see your positive attitude and outlook on life has helped once again. It is so great seeing you have made so many friends.

As Alyssa said: You are amazing, and you are a great role model.

Danielle, sorry, I am just getting caught up now. 

I still have a a pit in my stomach and tightness in my chest as I reflects on and relate to your journey. 

It is heart warming to hear how many incredible and loving people love and support you.   It is amazing.  And its sad but real that there are fearful and ignorant people in the world.   

The amazing and inspiring part of it all is you.  It is your open, positive and loving approach to life that is so incredible and inspiring for me.   It's what makes the difference.  I know of an incredible trans man / boy, who has been very open, worm and loving and lives in a small remote town...they have had nothing but love and support largely because of their openness and warmth.

I admit to experiencing fear and anxiety as I reflect on your journey and deal with each day and layer of my journey.   Your openness with us, and your positive and loving way helps inspire me and gives me confidence to carry on one day at a time.

Thank you and big hugs

Karen

@Karen   Thank you for your heartfelt reply.  In my own life I have found being positive is a powerful tool that helps keep me focused and moving forward improving myself and getting on with my life.   
Negativity just drains our soul and is not a very enjoyable way to go through life and just as important, people that you come across are more accepting and want to be around a person with a positive outlook about life.   Obviously in our lives there are times to reflect and perhaps not feel so positive but it is best to use those times to plan a path to a better outcome.
I trust that you continue updating us with how things are going in your personal journey.   
As we share our successes, our failures, our disappointments, our aspirations and our good times we not only help others but we help ourselves.
Thank you for your reply.

Hugs and well wishes as always,
Danielle

Hi Danielle,

I posted this over in my own thread, but maybe it would fit your “hot and sweaty” montage. I was madly glistening in the Florida humidity when this was taken...

@Steph2.0   Stephanie: That is a terrific picture of a woman working hard...  thank you for posting it and yes, when I get the montage going this summer your picture will make a great addition.

By the way... you look wonderful... I love your hair, just be careful to not get it caught up in the prop.

wow, that was hard to read. I'm so glad that you have people sticking up for you, but a lot of that bummed me out, you're such a sweet person and if people can't respect that regardless of gender then that's just sad. I really wish I could give you a hug right now!
I know Maddie me too ;(

Danielle, Allison isn’t really kidding you, and we are all stalking you.  Popcorn in hand.

This latest chapter in the perils of the hunted prey is an affirmation that public opinion is actually on the upswing in accepting transgender people.  To have someone publicly defend you speaks volumes considering this is in the wilds of Alaska.

@Jessica & @Allison S     Please continue to "stalk" my thread all that you want, I am just glad that there are people like you that find my thread interesting...  and even some say it is helpful.
Who knew that just writing down my thoughts, issues and events would be interesting to anyone but myself?   
I enjoy any and all responses and suggestions that you and others may have to offer... please keep visiting my thread and "stalking" all that you want ``!!!
Hugs to all,
Danielle

Are to kidding!!! I am addicted to following your thread. I’m just glad I am on the other side of the world, otherwise you might take out a restraining order on me for stalking you!

As I and many others have mentioned, to are a real inspiration. Continue being amazing and sharing whatever thoughts you feel comfortable sharing. You have a big fan club following you.

Oh, you are a lucky girl! So loved by your friends (and protected!).  That just reinforces all what you said, in your earlier posts,  about your community and friends! So is this from the barista or suitor #4?

Hope you have a great evening and upcoming weekend! Hugs, Kelly

I loved reading your thread. I am glad you have such strong friends in town and suitors :) .

I especially like your positive attitude when things got tough. I am glad you did not waste energy on the negative people.

The pink lid and heart are adorable. She sounds like such a nice person. The coffee shop person sounds awesome too. You are very lucky to have such good friends.

Danielle,
   I don't like you because you are trans or cis. I like you because you are a kind, empathetic person. In a way, you are lucky with the recent events at the coffee shop. You got a look at the ugly underbelly of the attitude against trans people and you found amazing, wonderful people who support and love you. Many times I wonder about the nasty talking aimed in my direction. You now have a good idea how things stand. I have to think that is a plus. Anyone who would be interested in you only to flee because of social stigma, well, they are 'worms' anyway. I often have thought of my response should someone refer to me as an 'it' (or something similar.) I think I would state that I would rather be an 'it' than someone low enough to call someone that. You are right though. The best screw you to the haters is to hold one's head up high with a  big smile on one's face.
If I ever offend you, let me know. It's not what I am about.
