Yesterday evening my counselor gave me my letter of recommendation, which means I'll be starting my transition very soon! Probably within the next few months! I've thought about this moment for years. It was always some far off dream that I thought would never happen, but now things are finally coming together. I'm so excited and happy. I'm so glad I hung on even when I wanted to give up. Teenage me could have never imagined my life like this!
So younger followers, if any of you are feeling hopeless and thinking of giving up, don't. Seriously. You never know where your life could be going in the next few years. Hold on, and don't let go of your dreams. I never believed it when I was younger, but yes, it truly does get better.
