Being yourself is something that hurts incredibly when you can’t have it. But like many other things in life, when you reach a goal, from that point onward it becomes part of your routine. Being yourself is no longer something extraordinary. What is extraordinary, though, is that you made it there, and that’s awesome!

This comic is based on a drawing I made years ago, when I was still struggling to start transition. I had a lot of dreams back then where I would see my female self in a mirror. I learned to lucid dream just so I could live as a woman, even if it was only in my dreams. In one of these dreams, the female self reached out of the mirror and took my hand, bringing me with her to a glowing light where we fused into one. And I felt happiness, peace, completion. It’s been a long road, but now I’ve seen my dream come true (even if now it’s something quite ordinary).
