*laugh* no I have things I look back on and cringe about. Maybe I just left less evidence of them on public forums where I can easily re-live the shame.
If I had a time machine and I could go back and talk to my 20 year old self would have some sharp words for my younger self. Relevant to the topic of this thread, I remember that 20 years ago, a friend of mine came out as trans to me, and I was not accepting at all. I lost that friend, and I regret that very much every single time I think about her.
Reading this thread makes me smile, hearing about people finding greater happyness with their own self identity. That is so important, and so special.
I am glad that this community has become a welcoming and supportive place, and thank you all for making it that! :)
