    I thought I was nonbinary and now I'm having second thoughts. I think I'm a girl again somehow. I did just come out of a very long depressive episode so maybe that was the cause of my confusion? I don't know. I felt so sure that I was not a girl and now I'm once again switching it up. Why is life so complicated? I'm just a kid. I probably don't even know what I'm talking about anyways. Am I the only who feels this way?

    Gender is weird.
    And I have but one other thing to say:
    You can present very feminine and still be Non-Binary.

    True, true. I've just been feeling more and more confused everyday. I don't know at this point. I stopped experiencing what I thought was dysphoria, I'm guessing it was just an intense form of self hatred. I'm so done, why do we even need genders anyway? XD

    I'm sorry about your confusion and the negative experience you were having :frowning2: Gender is so weird, I've just stopped thinking about how I relate to it.

    Figuring out gender may take a long time, so please don't feel too frustrated if you don't know for sure. I'm an adult and I'm still figuring it out, and I know a lot of people my age who are just realizing who they really are. It's ok to not know right now.
