I always used to identify myself as female. And for the most part, I still do, but then there are those creeping feelings I get that maybe this isn’t right. I started dabbling that maybe I feel like a guy but that doesn’t feel right either. But I like taking aspects from both genders and kind of using them as my own. But I don’t feel right either. I know we don’t have to confide to just one gender, but because of my up bringing its so hard to let go of conventional ideas. What should I do?
It is likely to take a period of adjustment, if this hasn’t already happened, where you get used to the idea of being the way you are and recognizing that it’s not what you thought and not what others have assumed, and that your upbringing did not prepare you for being different.
The main thing I could suggest is just that you believe me: you are the way you are, and that’s not a bad thing. You’re not alone and there are many others with similar feelings and conditions to yours, and we are here to comfort and console you all the time. If others don’t understand, refer them to ME and I’ll handle it. :D You’re OK as you are, it just takes some getting used to before it’s easy to accept it, but knowing that you’re not wrong or weird or a freak…that you’re WONDERFUL as you are…that is a good thing and we support you.
