Lately I've been wondering a ton about my gender identity. I've narrowed it down to either non binary, or trans ftm. The label hasn't been very important to me lately - I've been more worried about my name. I cannot find a name that I feel a connection to. I've never felt connected to my birth name, but so far none of the names I've tried seem right either. Do I not have a name?? Am I just crazy??
I can totally relate with what you are going through. I struggled to figure out my gender identity and I don't connect with my birthname or 'Yara' anymore (not connecting with Yara sorta makes me feel awful at times). I feel like this whole process of choosing name, using it and discarding is a part of growth and a way of embracing yourself. It is difficult and can leave you frustrated and confused but you will get there! You are not crazy or nameless! You can always try finding a name you like and asking your friends or trusted people to experiment with! good luck
