I guess this is a bit of stocktaking. Where are you now emotionally and what's one thing you regret and what's one thing that makes you happy as a detransitioner/desister?

(I'm having a think about mine too.)

Emotionally, I see to have reached a position of calm. Perhaps it's the eye before the storm. Perhaps it's a hard-won peace. I don't know. All I know is this moment.

I regret the alienation in the wake of my desistance. There are some friends I do value who felt betrayed by this decision. But I could not make any other choice, not and still remain true to myself and what I know of myself. I feel as though I've found myself again, or a stronger, more unshakeable inner certainty and strength. I regret the journey I took to get to it, but I don't regret having it. I'm happy I have it. I know myself, and no one can take that away from me.
