According to the crossdresser, he started nursing the desire to be a girl, since his childhood.
Seeing his mom do girly things, cook and take care of the house made his interest in becoming a woman, deeper and stronger as time passed.
Subsequently, he couldn’t take it anymore and he opened up to his mom, who in turn advised him to be himself and not anyone else.
Although his dad wasn’t happy about his path in life, his mom encouraged him to stick to what he wants and neglect what any other person thinks abut him.
Eventually, his mom passed, and according to Bob, things got harder cause no one could support him anymore.
