I didn’t know this at the time, but it was her way of boosting my self esteem and helping me to accept my femininity.

I used to think anything form-fitting was sexual, and I didn’t want the wrong kind of attention coming my way. After learning that how I carried myself spoke more about me than what I was wearing, I felt comfortable looking like a girl.
