Bits and Pieces
When I was a kid I never understood that when I grow up things wont be a walk in the park anymore. When I was about 3, my parents split up. Even to this day I don't understand why they were so unhappy. It made me think I was the reason that they couldn't stand each other. When I was little I was known to be very creative and colorful. I loved to color and whenever I went to visit family I would give them a picture. Sometimes I would write on it, "I love you" or "I'm gonna miss you". I really enjoyed seeing how happy it made them. I wasn't just into coloring, I also loved playing with cars, legos,climbing trees,and video games. That's right I was a total tomboy. As I was starting to grow up things became clearer to me, I never was really into dresses,tea parties,make up, dolls,painting my nails,and wearing jewelry. I never really felt like a girl growing up and I only pretended to like these kind of things just to make others happy or so people would accept me. I didn't realize what I was really feeling until my Freshman year in high school, but before I made any changes I had to be sure that what I was feeling was right. It wasn't easy keeping it a secret from everyone I know. How are you supposed to tell your family and friends that you're not only bisexual, but you are also transgender? There really is no easy way to tell your family or friends that kinda thing. Yes I am transgender, but that doesn't mean my personality changed. I'm still human. I'm still me. What I really don't understand is why are some people's mind set to, you're the gender your born as. So just because I was born a girl I'm just supposed to smile and pretend like the way I feel doesn't matter? No, because for the first time in my life I don't feel like I'm living a lie.
