Fox Posted April 22 Share Posted April 22 This might be hard to answer, but I'm at a loss right now. I am probably trans. I don't want to be my birth gender, and if there were a magical button that immediately made me the opposite sex/gender, I would press it in a heartbeat. I really want to be the opposite sex/gender, but I am terrified of transitioning. I'm scared of medical complications during surgery and becoming a target of discrimination. Especially when you read the news nowadays, I just get really scared of living as who I feel I truly am. I know logically that being trans is okay, it's normal, but I hate the idea of me being trans and transitioning for the reasons I listed above. When I see someone similar to me, I see myself, and I can't stand to see that reflection. I know there isn't an easy fix to this, but I was wondering if anyone had any self-exploration prompts or advice. How does one find the courage to live as themselves? (If it helps at all, I am in the mental healthcare system. I'm lucky to live in a relatively supportive environment but I still feel alone.) 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
