CBT has the same problem as affirmations.
Amanda Roman

❤ I’m there with you! That does describe your response to my post about being all in my head, never in my heart. I don’t know that we can rationally conclude that we are female, at least to convince ourselves of it from an emotional stance, we have to simply emotionally cross that last boundary.

I’m not too far ahead of you, in that yes I am beginning to open up my heart and inhabit that space within me, and while I am completely socially out now, there remains one exception : I can’t bring myself to enter women spaces, at least not without an escort. That last hangup comes from two places : A core value to never be an inconvenience or bother on others so that I will internalize discomfort to prevent it in other women, and a fear of violence.

It’s a journey. :)
