I am a girl. I feel like I should be a boy. I feel like i’m not living my life to the fullest because of this. I feel uncomfortable everywhere I go. School, the store, even in my own home. I don’t talk to many people. I’m shy and collective. I feel like if I was a boy, i wouldn’t be so shy and everyone would actually love me. I would have more friends at school. Its extremely depressing and embarrasing. I don’t dress as a boy so you can quit thinking the word “dike” now. I get up at five every morning to straighten my hair and put makeup on. I feel like ive been treated unfairly. I don’t like to shop or do anything a “regular” girl would. I need a way to cope with this. Ive put this feeling off for 16 years and im so fed up. Sometimes I feel like life isn’t worth living for. The uncomfortable feeling is eating away at me. I need help.
