I’m a girl. I know that I am. It’s the only thing I really know.
But I am so scared all the time, because nobody else seems to want me to know that.
Why can’t I just be a girl? Why does this all have to be so hard?
I just want to be a normal, happy girl. Instead I get a body that I don’t want, a mind that’s tearing itself apart, and a world that hates me for all of it.
I just want all of this to be over.
Truth is, it will never be over. There are still some people who will think negatively or be prudes about it. And you want to avoid that and live your life, but sometimes it feels like it can get you down.
I just want to tell you. Those people who have things to say about it and disagree with your decisions are nothing. It is how you want to live your life because from what we know we only have one, and you want to live it to the fullest and happiest. You may be fighting battles so draining and awful, but the biggest one is the one keeping you back from being happy. Do what you need to do to feel safe, meaning waiting if you need to, I hope this did not discourage you.. But you’ll find someone and other people who are going to give you a world of love. And you’re going to be the best beautiful girl ma’am. And soon I want to hear it again if there ever is a time you come back.
I love you and support you. If you want to be a girl, be one. There’s a whole community on your side.
