Jake Zyrus now more confident with own body since transition

Jake Zyrus is setting himself free from insecurities and criticisms made by other people about his body.

In an Instagram post on February 19, the singer shared a topless photo of him, as he opened up about his struggles with embracing his body since transitioning. 

According to Jake, the "standards" of other people affected his self-esteem. 

Pinag-isipan kong maigi kung ipo-post ko ba 'to. Kasi lagi kong iniisip kung anong sasabihin ng ibang tao," Jake admitted. "Sa ilang taon na nag-transition ako, masaya ako sa naging takbo ng buhay ko, pero lagi pa rin akong nai-insecure sa katawan ko. Siguro dahil na rin sa standard ng karamihan."

 

 

"Pero ngayon, palalayain ko na lahat 'yun," he continued. "Pagtawanan mo o hindi, hindi mo alam ang sakit, iyak, at mga dugo na pinagdaanan ko bago ako nagkaroon ng confidence na buong buo ko i-post ito."

Now, Jake could finally say he is more confident than ever to show his body to everyone, and encouraged his fellow transgenders to do the same.

"Masaya ako at gusto ko lang ipakita sa inyo na eto ako. Sa wakas, komportable sa nakikita ko. Hindi ako humihingi ng opinyon. Para ito sa mga kapwa ko transgender. Kung naghahanap kayo ng sign o confidence para ipakita at maging proud sa kung sino ka, tara sasabayan kita. Para sayo 'to," he said.

But for those who have yet to find their confidence, he reassures: "Kung hindi ka man handa pa, okay lang din 'yun. Lahat 'yan may tamang panahon."

"Well. This is me, guys. Mahal ko kayong lahat."

It was in 2017 when the singer underwent a top surgery, or a breasts removal surgery — the same year he debuted as Jake Zyrus.

In an interview that same year, Jake said he has never felt so happy seeing the changes in his body.
