True identity

Someone wrote…

Any day could be the day that I stumble across my true identity, whether it’s female or male or something in between, and while I look forward to that day with hope, I also shrink from it in fear.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    For me, what I found most frightening about searching for my identity was that if I found it, I would need to DO something about it. But once I found it, while it is sometimes overwhelming, most things fell into place. The thing I realized was that having a direction and knowing who I was provided me with a sense of peace. It didn’t bother me as much that other people judged me, because I was finally at peace with myself and on my way to being comfortable in my own skin.

    I totaly could have said this!! But it can hurt like shit realizing you can`t sit this out any longer. I am at this exact point these days to accept all this and embrace the personal growth it brings. I think it`s a question of having faith that things WILL fall into place! A hard lesson to learn…but it does feel better every day!
