I have helped and am helping people cope with loss, divorce, anguish and parenting. Depression is also a major issue that comes up.

Right now, you are a person in search for their own identity. Your identity is something that has always been inside you, but sometimes it can be hard to find it out because of social variables that influence us and make it harder to be honest to ourselves. Whoever you are is totally ok, it's an innate part of you, and there's nothing wrong in any orientation or gender identity. It's all about listening to your own feelings and nothing else, like the world didn't exist, there's only you and what you feel would make you happy. That is who you are.
You are whoever that you want to be. It's okay if your physical self is not descriptive of your mental self and it's okay if you are too. If you do not know or aren't sure of what and who you truly are, you will have to find that out yourself. No one should significantly interfere with your journey towards self-discovery and it is a path worth going through. It can take as long as you think it would take because everybody experiences things subjectively. You're always welcome to ask other people questions and you should keep in mind that those answers are coming from their own experience and should not ever exactly define what your experiences will be. I would suggest that you follow your heart and everything is going to be okay.
