A couple of weeks ago, we have a lesson on the seventh chapter of Matthew. We studied the whole chapter. Verses 13 and 14 have stuck in my mind.

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Matt. 7:13-14

These verses remind of the road that I trod on when I was coming to terms about my gender issues. Prior to 2000 I was traveling the same road as everybody else. Then suddenly I was nudged along to travel another path. No one else could do this for me. The trek was lonely, winding, challenging at times, and never ending. I was encountering new experiences. The further I traveled the more that life was becoming clearer.

If I continued walking on the broad road, I would have been miserable. I was a mess internally and emotionally. As the journey continued there were roads crossed, new discoveries, and more joy as I embraced what came my way.

The biggest trial came this past May. The road become narrower and I hesitated. I could turn back but that wasn't a viable option. Finall, I did continue trekking on a narrower road. What happened was my migration from a crossdresser to a transsexual. I have never been happier in my life.

I am writing this piece in more detail for an online magazine. I will let you know when it is published.
