Hi. I’m Alex. And I’m Transgender.

When people see me, they tend to freak out. Its not that I look unusual or strange, they just find me…different, I guess. By different I mean a special kind of different. I know how you’re picturing me right now; some weirdly deformed person with tumors and moles and maybe a lazy eye or something. I don’t mean that I have an issue on the outside (which I do, but we’ll get to that later) I’m having more of an internal struggle.

I try to be the best big brother I can be. Except, I wasn’t always the brother. I mean, I was always a boy on the inside, but I wasn’t on the outside. Now you see my dilemma.

I feel like I’ve been mislabeled, like a factory default. Like when a package gets the wrong stamp. And that makes me hate me. I’m not saying that I hate my whole existence, I like my personality but that doesn’t mean I like the package it’s in, you know?

Now, I’m waiting, in the dark, hidden. I really don’t know what people think of me: short haired girl who acts like a guy? But they’re wrong. I’m not a girl.

Welcome to my world.

I am Transgender.

  1. You shouldn’t care what other people think of or about you. Just be yourself. Your family and friends should love and support you for who you are, not what they want you to be. Accept yourself for who you are, not what they think you are; or what you have. Do you get what I’m going with this??? People talk about what and who they are because they’re jealous of all the attention you get from your friends and family and other loved ones.
