You are entitled to feel anything about your gender assigned at birth. Many trans people are highly conflicted with their assigned gender, and that's why theit need to be recognized as the opposite gender is so strong. For others, the conflict is not as strong. You're not obliged to feel either good or bad about anything that was assigned to you, you are who you feel you are, and your feelings are valid.
