I’ve been thinking about who I am. And, I’ve realized that who I am physically—on the outside—isn’t the same as how I feel on the inside. I’m trans, and I really feel more like a guy/a girl/that I don’t fit into a single category as a guy or girl. This is how I feel and who I am. I haven’t been able to be myself, but I want to be able to be me, which means being a guy/being a girl/not being one or the other in a way that feels right for me.
I care about you, but I need to spend some time figuring out what’s right for me. I imagine you need some time to take this in too, but your support and friendship—when you’re ready—would mean a lot to me though.
(You may not feel comfortable coming out to a partner as trans because you may fear for your safety. That is OK. You should never feel like you have to come out to someone, especially if you fear for your health and well-being.)
