I wish physical a physical transition changed old thought patterns, too. It’s not that easy, though.
I have known I am transgender for years, but I have fought it. All the rationalizing really accomplished was a delay in what was inevitable for me and a lot of mental anguish.
Unfortunately I am finding some of those same thoughhts sneaking up on me, even now. I cannot describe how happy it has made me to finally be me, but I those old rationalizations still come up. Maybe I am not really trans and it was this or that that made me think this way.
It is ridiculous because the evidence of my current life clearly shows that I am now more comfortable annd happy with myself than ever before, yet I still give these thoughts a place in my head.
I have read of people who say you aren’t tranns if you have doubts like this. I want to say that these doubts are about being human. I am without question a transgender woman and I am sure I am not the only one who has had these thoughts.
