When naming a child, you sometimes have a difficult time finding that perfect name for that perfect little baby you're goint to hold in your arms.
Well, figuring out the name I will live with for the rest of my life is similar. When I figured out that my gender was neither female or male, I started out on a journey of self discovery. I came out as transgender when I was 18 years old. Before this I didnt have a name for the mysterious thing I was experiencing. When I turned 20, I started speaking out about my gender transition and my fear around it. January 4th, 2018 I took my first shot of horemone replacement therapy. This is also when I started to figure out what name would fit me. I've tried 3 ones Daniel, Luka now Rylander.
Even though, I love this journey, it isnt a easy one. I never chose to be transgender, I never chose to have to live in a body that I didn't fit in. I DID choose to be my authentic self, and find happiness.
With that being said, I have to find myself. I have to recover from my past. I have to heal my wounds. I have to stabilize my mental health. I have to explore my gender. I did, I am, I continue too.
If that wasnt the answer you were looking for, I dont have another one for you.
Every gender transition is different.
Every gender transition is hard.
Every gender transition has obstacles.
Just support those who are going through it, ask them what they need help with. Gender is a beautiful spectrum. It has so many people in it, it has so many rainbows. Gender expression is so wide, it's so important that you respect that.
