I have noticed I like the sound of my current voice better when I speak "higher" - it has more colour to it - but after years of unconsciously speaking lower in my old voice, it doesn't come naturally. I will just have to retrain myself, again

It is a weird boomerang effect where before, I felt like I had to be as MASCULINE AS POSSIBLE to be perceived as anything but, you know, this cute small girl, and now I am learning to bounce back and have longer hair if I want to and get into florals again.
Like the difference between using Google Translate and just speaking the language. Sort of.
