How many of us think back and try to conceive how life would be different if circumstances had been different, the ‘What ifs’ are endless’. We could think of many scenarios which would lead us to the dream life we want, but would that lead to regrets and even resentment towards those that we perceive as blocking the path? Then that creates the ‘If only’ with possibly more regrets and so it goes on.
All we do know is that we are where we are and should make the best of it.
For my own thoughts, well of course I would like to have done things differently which would have changed the course of my life but it was difficult for a young TG/Crossdresser. Over some decades I am where I would never have dreamed of being. Social attitudes have changed, laws have changed, information is at the touch of a button and it is easier to make decisions and be seen as the person we want to be.
