09/14/2021 - Who am I?
Hi I am 12 years old in 7th grade.
I was wondering who am I?
My friends are choosing their pro-nouns
and sexuality but I don’t know who to be!
What do I do!?
I’m so glad you decided to message us :) I think the bravest thing someone can say is “I don’t know yet”. I feel like your feelings start developing but change a lot and that’s pretty normal. I think that’s why a lot of people default to “girl” or “boy” is because it takes a lot of soul searching to know how you feel for sure. Even if you don’t know yet, it’s perfectly fine to try things on. Like see how different pronouns end sexualities feel. Do you like it? Do some fit or do others not feel like you? It’s perfectly valid to feel one way one moment but different the next. I’d love to hear if you’ve thought about any identities or if you’d like to know more/have questions about any of the identities.
this graphic is pretty helpful and maybe you fill it out based on the day, it can change. And if it all feels overwhelming, you can always just educate yourself about the different identities and decide later. You can be a human, and that is always enough. How do you feel about your friends choosing identities?
I just want you to know how proud I am of you for reaching out to us. We are also available if you want to call/text/messenger us. My shift is on Thursdays from 6-9pm, you can just ask for me! :)
Good luck on learning more about you and I hope you message us back!
Thank u so much for reaching out to us we love love love hearing from u ! but yea totally i get that sometimes it’s hard to know who you are yet and mostly in a world where being yourself is starting to be totally accepted. It’s okay to not know who you are yet or your pronouns or any of that. this is something that takes time and even tho it’s hard and so confusing to not know who you are yet i promise it gets better. you can try to experiment with different pronouns for now and see which one sticks with you or maybe with friends. you can do it i believe in you seriously u realizing that you want to be someone different is such a huge step and recognizing it is even more important. you can do it!!!! im cheering you on!!!!
i work on tuesdays from 6-9 if u wanna talk more :) i’m cheering you on!!!!!
Hi! I hope your having a great day and thanks for sending your message! Well, to answer your question your you! Just because your friends are choosing pronouns or sexualities' doesn't mean you have to too. It takes time to find out who you are and who you want to be and explore yourself. You shouldn't feel pressured to be someone you're not :)
