The last time I wore a dress was my grade seven graduation (though I do believe I wore skirt for a funeral one time after that, not that I wanted to) I remember feeling extremely uncomfortable for all of the graduation. I tried to look happy for pictures and tried to be comfortable but on the inside I felt terrible. It was one of the first times in my life I felt extreme gender dysphoria.
My Mom and I were just looking through old pictures and she found the ones from the grad. She smiled and showed them to me, I didn’t have much interest in them, and I saw her looking at them, she looked a sad.
I know I shouldn’t, but I feel so guilty.
I know that feel, baby boo. It’s the worst feeling.
You’re a human and your feels are valid but if she needs to process she needs to do so in a way that is not at your expense.
I love you, man. Be well.
