Life can be hard at the best of times - and it's undoubtedly more so for those who feel like they were born in the wrong body. It's hard to imagine a more jarring, dissociating, and all around overwhelming experience than looking in the mirror and feeling fundamentally opposed to what you see looking back at you.
But as potentially upsetting that this sort of body dysphoria is, it makes the feeling of relief upon achieving the body that fits your identity all the more powerful.
Such is the story of two friends, who, born with bodies that they felt trapped in and disconnected from, managed to raise funds to go under the knife to put things right. And the way the pair celebrated is pretty adorable.
