I met a guy.

And he is amazing.

But there’s a problem.

We’re 11 and a half hours away from each other, and we are 4 years apart in age.

This is greatly looked down upon.

But I had to prepare myself for the news I heard, when he said he had a valentine.

Now, this might be pathetic, and it sounds pathetic as I’m writing it.

But. Part of me wants to scream my feelings that he knows far too well.

But I keep my cool and hunker down because I don’t want to ruin anything.

Because it hurts…

I honestly cannot write this without saying that I have always seen myself as “different”. I’ve never been truly feminine or truly masculine. I was raised as a female despite how much I wanted to be just like little boys growing up. I wanted everything a boy had, girly things just didn’t interest me. I was forced to wear dresses, but loved wearing skirts, I was forced to wear feminine things while I silently felt judged and misread.

It was confusing growing up, I was constantly wondering what it would be like to be in a male body. Every time…

What is the LGBTQIA+? An umbrella term which embraces a matrix of sexual preferences, orientations, and habits of the not-exclusively- heterosexual-and-monogamous majority.


Now, why is it so dangerous to be part of this group?

If I were simply answering this question I could easily say, “Because there are people out there that their sole purpose is to harm us.”. But in all retrospect it is so much more than that nowadays.

Depending on your age you are vulnerable to influence, no matter if you like it or not. However, the wrong kind of influence could harm someone mentally. Now…

Now before we all start a riot and all the kids of modern day schooling attack the school system, as much as I would love to see that haha, but school isn’t something we should praise.

It’s the same teaching as back in the 1850s just with more fancy things involved.

But for any parent out there grades put so much stress on a child, I grew up being taught that my grades needed to be PERFECTION, if they weren’t above a C+ I could kiss all the electronics goodbye. …

Why Am I Different? Am I Different In A Good Way? How Do I Cope? Everything In General

Let’s begin.. Firstly I want to identify the keywords for the cis-gender people that might read this or just for people that do not know what these words mean.

Transgender: Denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender does not correspond with their birth sex.

Non-Binary: Denoting or relating to a gender or sexual identity that is not defined in terms of traditional binary oppositions such as male and female or homosexual and heterosexual.

Cis-Gender: Denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex.

Androgynous: Partly…

I might want to get started by saying I am assigned female at birth. Growing up I had a patchy childhood and I just never fit in. But I never questioned my gender, I grew up as a female, enjoyed doing feminine things but something always felt off. I could never put my finger on it though so I just let it be.

It wasn’t until I was 13 when I figured out what the LGBTQ+ Community was, and I always thought I was a cis female, but I started to question my identity fully. …


I am a 15 year old, transgender/non-binary, high school student! My pronouns are He/They, I am merely here sharing my stories as well as reading about others!
