    I am a hetero female to male transvestite,

    is anyone else out there? There's not even a topic for it. I accept myself in this, but my very religious parents and whole society doesn't. I can't explain that I've always felt uncomfortable and sick even when I'm dressed like a girl, and comfortable and attractive when I...

    I am not a flawless person.

    my mind is a dark place with fire, demons, regrets and holes. I am not a part of any charity events, and I don't volunteer to help with things because I am often too busy mixing lava with cotton candy in my hell. I do not have the perfect job, the perfect family, and the...

    I would like to be surrounded by people

    who won't judge me or what I like. I like a lot of different music and don't like criticism about it nor how I look and act cause I can be weird at times and I get into these moments where I care what others think but why should I ? It's my life.

    I don't act how I think people want me to act.

    I'd rather be alone than be surrounded by people who don't like me for me. I act like myself, and other people don't have to like it. They can leave. Pretending to be different is too tiring ;3

    Since third grade, I was neglected

    for not being like everyone else. I liked video games and drawing, and since I didn't know anything outside my own world, that was all I could talk about. My friends started slowly drifting away. I got quieter. I became the girl who never talks in class. My teachers knew I was...
