Hello all!
« on: June 25, 2022, 01:54:59 pm »
I am, as yet, unidentified… even to myself. I have no name, only a desire to find it along with myself.
I’m a 50 yr old (born male) who has lived a relatively normal life. I got married, had kids, got divorced (unrelated to why I’m here). I have always known I was not male, inside. I’ve never hidden my ‘gender fluidity’ - but neither have I expressed to anybody just how far it leans away from my biological gender. I want to be seen, acknowledged, and try to find peace in knowing, and finally presenting my genuine self.

I have lived my life so far as an introvert & isolated, and found quiet comfort in that existence. But, I n my transformative journey, however short so far, I have found remarkable comfort in knowing I’m not alone. I find myself seeking others going through a similar experience, in an effort to try an better navigate my own. So, thanks in advance to everyone here that may help me achieve that goal. I too, hope you find your path.

Hi UFO,

Welcome!

I was also  quite introverted, but  am much more outgoing now that I present female.
Much of the social awkwardness of the past is gone.

Let go of the things that no longer serve you... Let go of the pretense of the false persona, it is not you... Let go of the armor that you have worn for a lifetime, to serve the expectations of others and, to protect the woman inside... She needs protection no longer.... She is tired of hiding and more courageous than you know... Let her prove that to you....Let her step out of the dark and feel the light upon her face.... amg🌸 Before / After

Hello UFO,

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 you 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.
