Question for those who are still early in their transition (i.e. mostly still presenting as male): do you find that you start seeing yourself differently?
I ask because I am basically still living as a male, and am just at the point where I’ve finally accepted that I am trans and am just taking some baby steps as I figure out the long term plan. But strangely, sometimes I look in the mirror, and it’s like I can see the woman there, even if I’m not presenting that way. To be clear, I haven’t started HRT.
Is that weird? Or is it a side effect of acceptance? Curious if anyone else has experienced something similar.
I have accepted that I am trans, but I’m a nervous wreck about surgery, hormones, clothing, makeup, hair, and God only knows what else!!!
Is it possible to accept yourself as transsexual and not do any of these? I have a friend, and a partner that have been very helpful, but I can’t rely on them indefinitely.
Can I go through life looking like a man, but feeling like a woman? I know inside that I am a woman. I don’t really care what other people think. I don’t want to go through the things I mention above just to make a statement to other people. I can come here and hide behind an Avatar which represents who I see inside. Inside I am a vivacious young woman that is outgoing and fun.
