There are five things I would like to say to myself at eighteen years old.

  1. Don’t feel ashamed of who you are
  2. It doesn’t get easier as you get older, it gets worse
  3. No matter how hard you try, no matter what you do, there is nothing that will ever make you a man
  4. You can’t hide from this it will always be there. You will never out run it
  5. Don’t be the person others expect you to be just be you

Behind a calm and friendly exterior I try every day to deal with a gender dysphoria I have had since I was four years old. I have never really known how to deal with it so have kept it to myself but have started a talking therapy and a blog to see if that helps.
