Not just a new year but a decade as well. What will the next ten years bring? I’m hopeful for greater stability and compassion, but those in charge may feel and act differently.
While doing things on a wide scale may feel beyond us, there are things we can do for ourselves. I’m not suggesting throwing caution to the wind, but I am saying with the new year’s energy behind you, taking steps to explore your gender identity can be done.
You don’t need to have a full wardrobe, be amazing at makeup (I know I’m still learning), or out. You don’t need to be sure if you’re genderfluid, bi-gender, crossdressing, or anywhere else on the trans spectrum. I think you just need to be open to the possibilities, take a chance, and push yourself a little.
Maybe that’s reading up on some blogs, checking what’s going on in Reddit, or getting in touch with a social group near you. You may surprise yourself, so save your pennies on a gym membership, take good care of yourself emotionally, and give things a go.
