now the crippling dysphoria leads me to say 'no' so im gonna give a final answer of 'no'
Came here to say this
Mostly, it took a long time to get there though. I had a family abuse to unpack, sexual orientation to come to terms with. Depression to get therapy for. I sacrificed a lot of my life to my family for longer than I should and didn't really start living until late in adulthood.
But I got to a place where I have a life im mostly happy with who I am day to day.
i like being me and my friends like me for being me but certainly not my parents and i hate to disappoint them but at what cost
I like some parts of me.
Other parts of me make life a lot harder then it'd otherwise need to be.
i don't mind, there is always room for change though.
It would be much more enjoyable if I was a #resist liberal living in my own lalaland.
Sometimes. Not generally.
I used to really hate being me and hated almost all aspects of myself but I've come to terms with it and I'm happy to say that I do like being me :)
Eh, this flesh bag gets me around.
I'm gonna be /u/Belsima's counterpart here— I don't mind being me, since my dysphoria's pretty mild nowadays. I also wouldn't like being anyone else (or not existing at all), so I guess I'll have to say 'yes'.
I am what I am
I intensely like being me and always have. There's a lot about my life that sucks, a lot of really rough patches, and a lot that I've had to change and am still working on, but just the feeling of existence, of filling out the space of being myself, I've always loved it, even when shit was real bad.
Not really, but then I look at the people around me and I feel grateful for not being an idiot.
