Tylers_Pretty_Rad 9/2/2021 01:06 pm 621

I was just hoping these could help me or anyone else looking for ways

For me (a completely closeted person)

-Do any gender-conforming things that help

-Honestly sleep

-Draw me as I hope others will one day see me

-Write myself letters

-Act out an introduction in the mirror where I use name/pronouns

i dont have bad dsyphoria luckily, tho some days i do get uncomfy in my parts of my body in public or walking around and stuff.

on days i feel dysphoric or sm i wear a big hoodie or really baggy t shirt and just kind of chill. idk dont have much coping mechanisms

also to feel kinda happy or something i imagine how i want to look in the future and the cute like i want and how cool i hope to be and yeah that can make me feel good

+ listening to Home/This Is Home by Cavetown is a great thing xd i listened to it when i felt hurt and dysphoric cause of my ex friend

I luckily don’t get very bad dysphoria very often but when I do I just cry. For the less bad dysphoria I just have to eradicate the problem as fast as possible as much as I can lol

-Draw nothing but myself with stubble and eyebags

-Sleep

-Receive constant compliments on my body from my bf (this works cuz he clarifies that he likes me with whatever body I wants lol)

I am not trans, but I also suffer from dysphoria. For me, if I can figure out what part of myself and my body is making it worse today, I try to help that. Like, if it's my muscles (my lack thereof) then I work out, if it's my height then I wear tall shoes, etc. I think it helps to find what it is that is most distressing that day. If it's all upsetting then I just... cry, lol.
