I want to run. I want to run away from here, and run to my true home. I want to run as far as my paws will take me. I want to run to a place where I can call home, and truly feel at home in my heart, mind, and claws. But I'm here, in a place I know I don't belong. I'm different. My heart and mind don't match my body, my face, my birth species. It's frustrating, having the blood of a wolf coursing through you while your physical appearance denies what you truly are on the inside. I want to be free to be the wolf I know I am. But I'm stuck here. I want to run from everything I've ever known to live the life I want. But most importantly... I want to run away from myself.
I feel as if there's a lot of misanthropy in both the therian and kin community. If you don't know what misanthropy is, it's a dislike or hatred of humankind. I find it foolish? Even though we identify as non-human, we still physically and mentally are human.
Some therians/kin also believe they're better than other humans simply because they're 'kin. Which, again, is false. There's nothing more special about identifying as something non-human than "just" being a "normal" human. I'm kinda guilty of this as well, sometimes I think of being non-human as this special, unique thing.

Hello. My name's Axel, and I'm making this account as a place for therian type posts. I may not always post, but I'll try my best. I am a wolf therian(I know, the most common kind), but I also have a fox theritype as well.
I can't do quadrobics that easily, as my legs are weaker than they should be.
I want to show everyone that it's okay to be who you are, even if others don't accept it. I want to show others like me that they're not alone. If anyone needs to rant about something, or just say hello, then feel free to do so. I love helping others and hope I can help as many of you as possible discover who you really are!
The picture does not belong to me, it is one I found on google. If you know the original owner of it, please tell me so I may properly credit them!
There is a big difference between advice and being ‘rude.’ I have noticed that a lot of ‘new’/‘fake’ therians tend to get a lot of things wrong. For example; “my theriotype is a blue wolf called frosty who has a heart on her chest.” Obviously, this is most likely impossible as no real animal fits those identities. I could go into talking about otherkin but that’s not where I’m going with this. The point of this post is, if you see someone getting something wrong and/or incorrectly, please correct them ONLY if you know what you’re talking about. And also be extremely polite and kind.
If a child got something wrong try not to scare them off for what they have mistaken. I love seeing more ‘experienced’/‘educated’ therians helping out others to discover things and correct things. But what ever you do please don’t be rude. That also goes to the person receiving the advice; even if someone’s comment upsets you try to thank them and be polite.
Going hostile is not going to fix anything.
This post isn’t very therian related, though I feel like it should be pointed out. There is a difference between bad criticism and positive criticism. This isn’t directed at anyone at all! It just makes me upset when people try to help but only get backlash.
As a community we are all people alike and share a gift or maybe a curse. In my opinion being therian or otherkin is extremely unique and very interesting. As well as horrible sometimes. We need to stick together and work to help each other with our day to day lives. Please, just be nice!
