    Good question. I ponder it often. I like how you pose it blankly without surrounding suggestions.

    Early in life, I followed my parents’ instruction and focused on becoming the best I could at something society rewards. I became a lawyer, built my own firm, and “succeeded” at that. But it feels hollow. Not empty but lacking in personal significance.

    Now, I’m pursuing MY dream. My belief in myself. And that’s independent of society’s view because society doesn’t recognize, let alone reward, gender deviance. Until recently, society punished what I’m trying to do — live authentically.

    I believe being true to ourselves fulfills our purpose.
