it takes courage to grow up and become who you really are - e.e cummings
not that anything is meant to be easy but being transgender is not easy. it’s not easy to bind, it’s not easy to come out, it’s not easy to find the right clothes that fit us, it’s not easy to just be ourselves. it’s not easy to earn and save to our name, surgeries, prescriptions and appointments. being who we strive to be, it’s not easy. it’s not cheap either. while it’s easy for you to hate; it is i who has grown to let it be easy to love myself enough, to wear my pride loud and proud. it’s the courage one takes to truly become 🌱
was on t for 2 years and this has been one month off t, not intentionally though. it’s been both a constant reminder and a scary feeling to think about when will my period come, to not feel masculine because it feels as though my appearance is fading. to wonder if my peach fuzzes are still coming and so forth.
despite not having my prescriptions, i truly am thankful for when i will and for when i was because someone else probably is going through much worse things than i am. i’m still living and i’m here to remind you, that yes it takes courage to grow and become who you are but it also takes patience and it’s okay if your not on t. your still man enough. 🌹 things will happen but things will subside and eventually if you let it, blessings will come your away. i know mine will. it’s not easy being transgender but it’s easy to being myself. 🌱 // n o t e a s y
