Googling, and youtubing to hear other peoples perspectives are a huge help. Now I can't tell you if you are transgender or not, only you know the answer to that. However I can tell you what I did!

It's normal to feel curious about your identity. Everyone , transgender or not , goes through self discovery. Be excited you're one step closer to finding out who you are. 

2. Understanding what transgender means, and seeing if you can relate. 

When I heard the term transgender and learned what it meant, it felt like everything clicked. That's not the same experience everyone has, however it might just feel like you've discovered something new about yourself. If transgender doesn't seem like it fits, seek some advice.

Love yourself no matter what and prepare yourself for anything. Use your resources and if you don't know what they are look for them. It is better to go into this as prepared as possible.
