Hi everyone :)
« on: November 25, 2020, 10:34:42 am »
Ive been lurking around this website for a while, forum and wiki helped me a lot to gain some confidence so ive decided to join the community :)

Im pretty young (23 y.o.), and im on the very beginning of my journey. Ive been feeling that im a girl from relatively early age, have been struggling with these feelings till recently; rn i live alone and im not in any relationship so im free to feel myself and im free to do whatever i want to  >:-) Ive been discussing this situation with therapist for the last couple of months, its still really challenging for me because of covid, depression and edgy political situation in my country (i live in Belarus), but still im excited to move on ~

Hi @migthymoondragon

  Welcome!


Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Hi :)

Some people think that being alone is a bad thing (my GP tried to blame it for my wishing to transition), but it I think it gives you time to realise who you really are, when you're with someone you're always trying to be the version of yourself which you think they want to see, some people spend most of their adult life trying to be a different version of themselves.

I don't really know anything about Belarus or how transgender people are treated there, but I wish you all the best x

Ill to my best. Its still hard for me since every little step gets me overwhelmed with emotions, and it takes a lot of time to regain focus. in fact i didnt even notice ive made a typo in my name, which caused me some trouble logging back in :D

Pretty much same here, had to re-read these to clarify a couple of things

Dont know what else to say here - so once again, thank you all for your warm words!

I really hope its going well for you rn! This gave me some mixed feelings but yeah i can definitely agree with most statements. Living alone really does give you the freedom to be who you are.
I think it all depends on the person, you can always choose whether you need to adapt to somebody or not. (Tho i agree for transgender people this freedom to express themselves is invaluable)

I don't really know anything about Belarus or how transgender people are treated there, but I wish you all the best x

Once again thanks! From my experience, people in Belarus seemed surprisingly neutral about this, compared to what ive heard about CIS community in general. Perhaps historically belarusians seem to be really tolerant people, perhaps i just got lucky so far :D
