this may be a gross over-generalization on my part, but generally speaking, there is a lot of silence when it comes to talking about questioning one’s identity, changing it or anything else that others could misunderstand or misconstrue as you having “gotten [something] wrong” in regards to yourself. such pressure /stigma/shame can stifle open discussion of introspection, self-discovery and, well… to be honest,
i’mrather annoyed with myself for having shied away from talking more about my history of/experience with questioning and changes in identity,but am also determined to change that this year.
this video is me spilling some random thoughts on the topic ahead of delving into my actual experiences/feels/etc in future videos [ …]
a heartfelt ‘thanks’ to everyone who has already responded kindly to the video on YouTube. hopefully i will be able to hold myself to my word and talk more about questioning and experiences with identity in the future. <3
