Your experience sounds very similar mine. Growing up not knowing anything about me was different until I was around sixteen years old. The therian communities outside of tumblr are much more constructive, I have found , than the one we have here. I have had bad experiences on some other websites and forums, but that mostly had to do with my age at the time that I tried to reach out to other therians. It’s wonderful sharing your experiences with people who might need help, or using your experience to educate people about us. That is what I strive to do with this blog.
You seem nice too :) thanks for the message!
That may very well be that I was a raven in a past life, or maybe even a wolf in a past life. Who knows? I’d love to go to a hypnotist and find out about that sort of thing, but last time I tried I found out that I cannot be hypnotized.
Vancouver Island wolves are pretty spectacular :) I’m just your run of the mill timber wolf as far as I can tell. It’s pretty interesting you have identified your therio or kin type so fully. Thank you so much for messaging me! :)

Sorry for the super long no reply :( I used to like that theory very much myself and hey as a first thought theory it isn’t that bad. It might not add up quite as well in action though. If the theory was to hold true why aren’t there more therians with extinct theriotypes? Shouldn’t the same principles apply? There are more humans in the world now than carrier pigeons. Where are all the carrier pigeon therians then?
The abundance of wolf therians might just be because wolves have had such a close history with humans that we have come to hold such staple stereotypes for them as a species, so when someone who may be a therian has those qualities they are quick to identify as a wolfkin, when really there are hundreds of animals with qualities similar to wolves. Just a contrasting theory for you to consider :) Only real self reflection can help someone who identifies as a therian find their theriotype. It just might be that lots of therians are wolves and that’s the end of it. Thank you so much for the message!
