Uniform country

Someone wrote…

Often I feel inadequate. I am a youth in a family that comes from a very conservative and uniform country. I am often reminded that I am supposed to be a woman, I should act, think, and look like a woman. All of these things make me feel like an inadequate individual; I don’t fit in among the women, I don’t fit in among the men. I’m often anxious of ever finding my place in the world, of being loved and accepted for who I am, whomever that turns out to be.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Don’t lose faith. You will find that place someday, and people who love and accept you for who you are.
