Embracing My True Identity



For decades I blamed my significant others for the television shows I watched. Then my current partner sent me an article that listed the greatest science fiction shows and another about movies.

Wow. What a revelation! As a side note, I think one of my brothers and I must have been adopted. ~grin~ But some things do skip a generation.

Reading the names, seeing the images, I began realizing that I sat and watched many of them all by myself. Now I’ve even found my tribe on Facebook, a group called The Geek Asylum. I’m on there every day either commenting or posting, laughing sometimes until tears stream down my face.

Good times. For example, someone in the group shared the following.


How about you? Is there anything you’ve learned to stop denying and start loving about yourself?

  1. I don't know that I stopped denying anything about myself but it took me many, many years to really look within myself and learn to love who I am! That took place about 7 yrs ago....I like who I am. Gotta check out your Greek Asylum on fb. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I've been sitting here thinking what I might have denied about myself and I honestly can't think of a thing. Either that or I'm still denying it! Cute Vid!

  3. Oh, I realized a few years ago that I am a dork. And, I can say it with pride. I am much happier with the honest revelation. I cannot blame my dorkiness on sci-fi or anything in particular...or, maybe therein lies my denial. But, I think I am just a natural dork. Hugs.
    P.S. I loved this post!

  7. I've embraced any and all labels concerning being a cat woman. Why not? I am one! I'm also a geek however, and a lover of hikes, beautiful trees, bees, and books, to name a few interests. And now I want a tauntaun.
