Transitioning your gender can be an overwhelming, confusing, and anxiety-provoking process. Intense self-reflection, experimenting with names, identities, and different ways of presenting is often a daunting task in a world that doesn't always validate or support our various, intersecting identities.
You wonder: Will I ever feel good about myself? What if I never feel legitimate?
You feel like you haven't quite convinced yourself it's okay to just exist as who you are.
A familiar narrative of transgender/gender non-conforming (TGNC) experience is that transition equals suffering and anxiety.
Is it possible that transition could feel more like a process of curiosity, discovery, and empowerment? That is the question we are obsessed with.
