To the person on the left: You are going to cut your hair and you are going to start wearing “boys” clothes. People will make fun of you, but that is because they don’t understand. You don’t understand, but it will all make sense later. You are just doing what feels right and comfortable to you. By the age of 6, you are going to be diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder and anger problems. You are going to grow your hair out again and you are going to try to play the part. You are going to spend the next 13 years trying to fit in, and hating every minute of it. But it won’t last forever, this I can assure you. To the person on the right: I couldn’t be more proud of you. YOU did it and are living proof that life gets better. You get better.
