to pull oneself up by one’s bootstraps

  1. (idiomatic) To begin an enterprise or recover from a setback without any outside help; to succeed only on one’s own effort or abilities.

(Via Wiktionary)

Dealing with cis society and, to a lesser extent, blogging on trans issues feels like that most days.

Lately, my bootstraps have become a bit frayed so I’m taking a brief hiatus while I replace them.

Back in a few.

    Sorry to hear you’ve run out of spoons (or your equivalent of them). Take care of yourself and enjoy the hiatus. I’ll be waiting to see you return. Ps sorry if this is a duplicate comment.
