I seem to get angry when I look at old pics of what I was before starting my transition. Bad memories I guess.

It really hurts my heart to see myself in past photography.

I see an obesity of a corpse with a facsimile smile plastered tensely to "her" face wishing so desperately that the people who "say" they love me would show it by accepting me too for the real person I am and not for this fake "woman" who has somehow found residency in their hearts over the real man who may never be truly accepted for who he is.  :'(

I have a hard time looking at pre-transition photos of me as an adult, but not so much with earlier images.

Some of those photos have really good memories attached, like this one:



I thought it would be fun to have the photo "regendered" and just love the result:



I've made it the wallpaper for my phone and I just feel happy when I see it...
