Is this reason I feel unhappy? Is it because I’m in the wrong body? On paper my life is pretty great. I have an awesome group of friends, a loving family (though I’m pretty sure my mum forgot about my birthday), in one day I graduate, I have a steady job and I’m pretty sure I’m going to get to study a masters. For all intents and purposes I should be pretty happy, my life is coming together and going great. Yet for some reason I feel hollow, like something is missing. Is it because I want to be a girl? Or do my issues run deeper? I don’t think for a second that transitioning would be simple, but would it make me feel complete? Is the solution to my problems staring me in the face?
These are the questions that will keep me tossing and turning tonight.
