i was born a female. I’m 15, almost 16. I was okay with being considered a girl up until a month ago, which is where things took a turn. I suddenly didn’t feel like a female. I didn’t want to be a male, but I didn’t want to be a female either. I started feeling sad when I got referred to as a she or a her, but I didn’t know why.
My friends are going through the same things I am, and through their help I realized I was Non-Binary. I am much happier this way, but most people don’t understand that. I have been made fun of, being called an attention seeker or “doing it for the trend.” It hurts, it really does. I try not to let these things get to me, but I can’t do it. It doesn’t help that I am a teen, which people say that I am too young to decide on these things and will regret it in the future. It really discourages me to come out to people, especially my mother and grandmother, who would understand but think it’s just a phase. Some people still refer to me as she/her, which I’ve learned to deal with.
TLDR: I’m not sure how to go about coming out to the people closest to me, such as my mother, grandmother, father, and my school friends / people irl. Sorry if I wasted your time.
