On Living A True And Authentic Life

by Stephanie on March 31, 2016

design“The weight of living a double life, the pain and hatred of my own body was washing over me in waves pulling me under again and again. I was drowning.” Jay Potter feared he would lose his mother when he transitioned from being her daughter to the son he truly was. He couldn’t keep his real identity hidden any longer, “Secrets are heavy, they pull us away from truth, from authenticity — they are hard work and I was exhausted.” He found his Mother’s love to be greater than imagined and reveals her words of advice that led to the life he was meant to live.
