It’s difficult for most adults to get through the day without experiencing stress but average stress levels are often amplified in people who are transitioning.
After years of trying to play the part of the gender you were born with, nothing feels quite as good as embracing who you are. After all, as Oscar Wilde said, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” When you make the decision to transition, you’re finally becoming who you really are.
Below is a list of some of the most positive and inspirational quotes for those who are inside or outside of the trans-community to keep in mind on the good (and even the bad) days.
