When I am out in the world I like to comport myself as a lady. Manners are important yes but it's more about being dignified and respectful of others (assuming they return in kind). Part of what embracing my femininity means for me is the idea of being a kinder and gentler version of myself who holds a more empathetic view of others.Living more honestly has helped me in that department where I can settle into myself even as I still know how to use the reflexes I was taught to employ while growing up. This can lead to confusion if we allow it and make us think that we must act to transition fully.
While for some this may be the ideal and even mandatory medical transition scenario, others may find their internal balance point elsewhere by creating a unique vision of what being a feminine being means.
