Which isn't to say I'm not subject to them, because of course I'm subject to them. It's good to have people around to remind you that you're freaking out over something fairly minor. Knowing the issue exists helps to pass and look more attractive - obsessing over it prevents ever going outside.
You have to learn to trust at least some of your friends to be candid about your appearance.
Did you start small and slowly increase your dose over the course of a year until you're finally on blockers or did you do what most trannies do and freak out and speed up the process as quickly as possible? if it was the latter, that's why you have conical boobs.
Not same anon but you're saying your happiness would then come from making others happy but may not workout for everyone. She's right though if focusing on everyone but yourself was the answer then no would need to transition.
But people still do transition simply because you can't help but come back to yourself ultimately.
