“You’re not broken, you’re not wrong, you’re just you.”
Figuring out how to navigate your gender identity can be confusing and overwhelming — especially if you identify outside the gender binary.
“Something that helped me become so much more comfy with my body and identity was wearing clothes I feel comfortable in. Shopping in the section of the store assigned 'women's' never felt right. The day I stepped foot in the section assigned 'men's' I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. I am a lot more comfortable and confident and love who I am as a human.”
“It took a really long time for me to be comfortable with where I am right now. I was born female and therefore I grew up with more traditional female clothes and ideals. For a while, I couldn't even wear more feminine clothes because it reminded me too much of my childhood and it felt wrong. I still sometimes have problems with my self-confidence and my image, but once you figure out how you want to present yourself, it's so damn comfortable. I just started college and have been going by my chosen name. I get to introduce myself as who I really am. It's the best feeling in the world.“
