I'm Slowly Becoming More Confident About My Pangenderism

My story started when I first questioned my gender somewhere around my 1st year of secondary school. I have always been a rather tomboyish girl. Back in primary school "gender" wasn't really significant to me, as I perceived myself just as "myself". When I graduated I became a bit uncomfortable with being physically a girl, which was showing more, because my body was becoming more and more mature. I thought I felt more like a boy. I looked at other males with a bit of jealousy.

In secondary school I befriended with very open-minded people and they helped me find out where I belonged. They treated me as a boy for a while (I looked like one anyway) - it was an experiment. During that period of time I realized I'm not completely comfortable with being male either. I decided then that I would just be myself, because i was a bit tired of trying to figure out who I am. But the matter of my gender still bugged me, because it's hard to belong nowhere. 

In my 3rd year of secondary school I came across pangenderism and I got that impulse that this is what I've been looking for all this time! After I've read many articles about this and stories of other pangenders and after a lot of arguing with myself about whether I'm sure I think I'm becoming more confident about my pangenderism at last.

Of course there's still a lot of doubts and uncertainty...

I'm glad you're finding out who you are and who you identify with. It really blows not belonging somewhere, yeah, so I'm really glad for you. :)
