As a closet crossdresser, this story seems very familiar to me. I’ve also amassed an entire wardrobe for my other self and there are bags of clothes I no longer wear/I’ve grow out of style wise.

I also struggled with sizing and bought many things that did not fit right and didn’t know what to do with.

I don’t think anyone will question you at goodwill. You are donating clothes, they don’t necessarily need to be yours. You can say you are just dropping them off for someone. Either way, I’ve learned to stop caring so much about what others think. The only person who can make yourself happy is yourself; and that starts with loving yourself. Easier said than done

Can I ask a question? How did you start?

I started when I was very young, like when I was 8 or 9. I always had a fascination with women’s clothing but I think like many cross dressers, I began by exploring my sisters or moms stuff; which as an adult now I know was wrong but as a kid I didn’t know any better. I think that contributes to the shame I feel when crossdressing and doesn’t help with accepting myself as a crossdresser. Not to mention my parents never really accepted me as a crossdresser. Eventually someone close finds out, it’s inevitable. I think my parents accept the idea of me being a crossdresser but they don’t actually accept ME as a crossdresser if that makes sense. As an adult I don’t really feel the need for their approval or acceptance anymore, but as a child that was very hurtful.
