True stories from transgender people

There are some true stories from transgender people, maybe you we can learn something from them.

I was born on August 2, 1993 as the youngest child of 8 siblings. When I was about 4-5 years old, my sisters would dress me up and put make op on me. Didn't know if it was right or wrong, all I knew was I was never comfortable with it. I got my first "boy clothes" from my aunt and practically wore it as often as I could, I was pretty confident with my outfit, and thought it was cool. Since then, I knew I've always seen myself as a boy but never got to speak out about it. Tired to live the way people have always seen me as a girl, I was even sent to an all-girl school, and I had t grow my hair. But I was never comfortable with who I am. In 2011, I was finally decided to chop may hair off. Each step I took unknowingly, made me transition to who I've always been deep inside, all because I knew it felt right to me.

When I was 4 I just thought I was like any other boy. As I grew a little older, I started realizing I was different. For a while I believed I was just a late "developer". When I was 16, I watched a documentary about a trans guy, the way he was feeling and how he had felt flicked a switch. I am so grateful that they were all amazingly supportive, and over time this increased as they understood more and more. And as grateful and happy as I was to be on hormones, I knew I needed top surgery. The positive impact that it has had on my life and dating is indescribable.

Transgender people levi's story. I was born on Match 13th, 1991, and I was my parents' first child. I loved playing outside and using my imagination. I was always pretending to be simba and I loved dinosaurs. I was very talkative and had a lot of friends. I insisted on short haircuts, boy clothes, boy nicknames, and male pronouns. I was extremely uncooperative when people tired to make me look and behave like a girl. I prayed every night that god would change my body to look like other boys. I got my first gender identity diagnosis. I started going to extreams to hide every feminine change happening to my body at the age of 11-12, some of them caused permanent physical damage. Most of my friends were boys and I felt right in with them. 

My parents became much more insistent that I start dressing and acting like a girl. I fought with them constantly ever compromising. I started becoming desperated and very depressed. My parents had me tested for an intersex condition, and I got my second gender identity diagnosis.I became suicidal with depression when I was 15-16. I saw no possible future, and the feminine changes to my body were only getting worse. My dad and I stopped talking altogether. At 17-18, I made my painful choice to try growing my hair and wearing girl dresses. I felt like a undercover spy in girls world, I became profoundly depressed again, feeling I'd lost my entire identity. I cut my hair and started dressing like a guy again. Then I started testosterone and had surgery. Within months, the world's perception changed and my ability to function in life became possible again. I was confident, happy, and hopeful for the first time in over a decade.
