An early throwback to 22, before beginning my male to female transition.
I was unhappy then. I had tried so hard to feel comfortable in my own skin. I thought that it if I tried identifying as a gay man that it would make me feel as if I fit in. My truth was far from it. I felt lost and constantly fought my "true" self. It wasn't until I had began informing myself about transition and becoming a transwoman that I knew exactly who I was and what I needed to do to be happy, no matter what the outcome was, my selfworth meant more to me. I lost a few friends but gained something much greater. You need to be yourself and know that not everyone will agree with you. But as adults we can all agree to disagree. The road is rough, and it is alot harder before it gets any easier, but know that there is always someone there for you, whether its family, a support group or a close friend. You can do anything, remember that ❤
