I know these feelings well. I remember what it was like to always feel like I didn't quite fit in my own skin, and I know how wonderful it is to finally - as you say - have the joy of my soul filling my body. It's a wild ride, finding yourself, but it's so incredibly rewarding!
Am crying, whoops. Wish you much, much more happiness to come.
happiness is anime squinty eyes
Speaking of happiness, seeing this one made -me- happy.
It's amazing how easy happiness can be when we get to be who we really are. ❤️
I'm really happy to read a real story of a trans person being happy. It's honestly revolutionary. This comic really resonated with me
I've been going through the same thing! Hilarious, I went through the exact opposite journey to the same destination. I started as a Nate, now I'm not, and I have the breasts I always wanted.
Thank you for sharing your heart with us <3
Now I'm gonna go learn to draw! 32 isn't too late to start :)
you’re amazing Nateeeeeee we’re all so glad you’re happy
this post fills my body with joy!
or, it is a flame that ignites the spark that lights the flame of joy within mine!
thank you as always for sharing!
Amazing. Ive felt as though my mind and soul are out of my body. I started taking ice cold showers at the end of every shower in the morning. When the cold water hits my body, it feels as though my muscles constrict, creating the necessary tension to snap my parts back into alignment. It is almost like it shocks me into reality, into the day and where my thoughts should be.
Oh and all the old photos....I know. I can see it. But I look so happy. How amazing we are a pretending and how easily others don't notice.
Im so glad you are taking care of you so you can show up with for real smiles...:)
This makes my heart feel warm 💙
This resonates so much for me!!! Looking at older photos there are so few where I look genuinely happy. But the photos from this past year and now, my joy is tangible. It’s such an incredible feeling to see the physical change of happiness in one’s own body and I love how well you expressed that.
I know how you feel. Even though I'm not out as non binary, ever since I got my hair cut short I feel I can look in the mirror and see who I am. I'm hoping that as I come out as non binary and start living more authenticitly as myself, I'll relate even more
This gives me so much hope. I confessed to a friend the other day that I no longer believed there was a me that would be content and not struggling all the time, and they said there could be if I take steps to make life good for myself and to be myself. (We were talking about hormones, PA support and top surgery.) I am glad you got there, and I hope I get there myself one day soon.
I'm still on my way there, but I will get there some day.
Must be the effects of gender euphoria. Being finally fine with who you are.
