MY LIFE’S GREATEST VICTORIES
DISCOVERING MY TALENT
[Caitlyn Jenner:] Source: LYBIO.net
In fifth grade, I was a dyslexic kid. I suffered from terribly low self-esteem. I thought everybody else was smarter than me, better students than me. I had gender issues… I had all these things I tried to overcome and never could talk to anybody about. And then came fifth-grade in gym class one day and the coach set up a race around a bunch of chairs and he timed every kid in school.
And, lo and behold: shocking, but I had the fastest time in the whole school. And I went “Wow! What’s this thing called ‘sports’?”
That that was really a turning point in my life.
I could take a guy who was a good student, good reader, and go on the football field and clean his clock.
SHARING MY SECRET
When you have gender issues, you have a tendency to isolate yourself from people and you are certainly afraid to tell anybody.
The first person I told was my first wife, Chrystie. And this is actually after we had gotten married because I thought I had everything under control. She was kind of shocked, as most people are,
but for me, it was the most freeing moment ever. Was being able to be honest with somebody about who you are.
BECOMING A CHAMPION
My first feeling when they put the gold medal around my neck was: “My gosh, it’s a lot heavier than I thought it was going to be.” “Okay, this thing has got some weight to it. This is – this is a good thing.”
I stood at the bottom of the box, and uh… waiting for the announcement. I looked, and there were two steps to get to the top of the box. In those two steps, I started crying. I said how lucky I was, accomplishing everything you can possibly accomplish.
To me, sports was always this wonderful diversion
from myself and about who I was.
STARTING A FAMILY
The greatest thing in my life I’ve ever done, barring the games, barring anything: children.
I have never been more proud than you can be as a dad,
to see what they’ve been able to do with their lives.
But yes, my kids are by far my greatest accomplishment. Better than a medal. You know, the medal’s like… Actually, I looked the other day actually the medal was in my like, nail drawer, you know, with all my nail colours and everything. I see all medals and that’s where it goes.
You know what the gold medal’s good for? Show and tell. Yes, with the kids. It’s great at show and tell with the kids. It’s so true! It’s so true!
DECIDING TO TRANSITION
I was sitting there, watching TV, and they had a gender clinic in Orange County.
I was scared to death to go over there, but it was going to be the first time that I could ever really sit down with anybody and talk about all the things that were going through my head.
When I left my first therapy session…
First of all: I survived it.
And nobody laughed at me. But I felt… I felt really good that here’s –
For the first time, I could actually talk to somebody
who’s intelligent, understands this.
I’m 34, I thought: “By the time I’m 40, I think I’m gonna transition.” “I just can’t take this any longer.”
And I got to about 39…
…and I just couldn’t go any further.
FINDING HAPPINESS AGAIN
In the 80’s, I was really down in the dumps. I didn’t know which way my life was going at that point. I was set up on a blind date by a friend, she had a great sense of style and class. And I give a lot of credit to Kris for kind of bringing me back to life.
It was a very busy house and quite a ride. But I loved it. That’s – that’s what I did.
STARTING THE SHOW
Kris and I were lying in bed and I think the Osbourne’s were on. Both Kris and I go: “We should probably do something like that.” Sometimes, you have a tendency,
when issues come up and dealing with things with your family, you have a tendency to avoid those type of things but the show kind of forced you into talking about them.
It really, in so many ways, brought our – our family together.
The day I did the shoot with Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair, I had this great gown on, off the shoulder, just rocking, and I looked in the mirror and I thought to myself:
“This is the first time I’ve ever seen myself.”
This person who has lived inside me all my life. There she was, for the first time.
Because I knew when Vanity Fair came out, everything was going to change.
Gender markers, name, everything.
And to be honest with you, the media threw old Bruce right out of the door. He was gone – okay?!
This Caitlyn character is a lot more interesting. And I knew, from that point on, I had to live my life as Caitlyn.
That’s the biggest victory of all. To wake up in the morning and just be yourself.
