I may be a coyote

So, I'm not sure how to word this, haha. But, it's something I've been thinking about all day yesterday and today, and I view it as somewhat of an important epiphany in my self-discovery.

I might not be a wolf. I think I am, instead, an eastern coyote, or possibly it might be another theriotype alongside my werewolf kintype.

I went for a walk yesterday, and I walked near the river and sat on a large rock, staring out into the water. My thoughts started to wander, and I thought about the things in my life that were most important to me. I thought about the things I wanted to learn, I reflected on my beliefs, on what I should do, and most prominently, I thought about my existence and my own personal identity. This isn't something I do regularly, so naturally, I spent quite a while sitting on that rock alone, staring out and just thinking. And, naturally, I started thinking about my therianthropy. As I sat there daydreaming, it suddenly dawned on me, sort of like I was shocked with a jolt of electricity. I might be a coyote, specifically an eastern coyote.
As I thought to myself about such an idea, I realized just how easily I was easily able to see and envision myself as a coyote inside my head, and see myself living the lifestyle of an eastern coyote. Ironically enough, even more strongly than my wolf kintype. I just undeniably feel like I'm a coyote.
The reason why I say it's likely I'm an eastern coyote specifically is because I feel a lot more at home in the environment in which that subspecies of coyote lives. Although, I'm willing to admit, this might be my personal bias, because I was actually born and raised in a semi-rural area in New England with a good coyote population. (I actually came face-to-face with a wild coyote last year!) So, it's likely that I may be biased because that is where I grew up. But at the same time, when I envision my theriotype, I imagine a coyote with a somewhat wolf-like build, very similar to that of an eastern coyote, as opposed to thinner and smaller like a western coyote. So, maybe I might not be biased after all, and it's possible my therianthropy may be a factor in why I feel so connected to where I grew up and currently live.

Even after this discovery, I still find part of me doesn't want to give up my identity as a wolf. While I've awakened as nonhuman many years ago, I've identified as a [were]wolf for a few months, and I admit I've felt at home calling myself wolfkin and werewolfkin. Part of me thinks the werewolf aspect of my identity is definitely still a thing. I do feel like I'm a werewolf. Just... not a regular wolf, if that makes sense. A coyote fits me better in that aspect.
I'll need to do more thinking and self-reflection. It's hard when you discover something new about yourself, especially when you discover that another part of yourself was false in the process. I do feel like a coyote, and I might look into the label "coyotekin" as I explore more of my identity. I'll try looking up guided meditations and other methods I can use to look deep inside myself for answers, as well as doing heavy research on coyotes. If I come up with any progress, I'll be writing a follow-up entry to this on my blog. Thank you sincerely to anyone who read this! :lovewolf:

Nothing quite like being in nature at the same time you analyze your non-humanity, it is amazing. I'm happy to hear you got the chance to think in depth about your theriotypes too! I think an interesting point you make here is that the environment where one grew up and lives can influence our perception of our non-human identities. Wishing you the best in discovering more about yourself!

Thank you so much, King! 🥺🥺 It really is interesting to think about how our upbringing may affect our kintypes, and I believe that might be the case for at least one other nonhuman out there. Where we grow up can affect us in one way or another, and for me, it might be a contributing factor to why I'm a coyote. But who knows for sure?
Either way, I really appreciate your support, it means the world to me! I'll definitely be posting any updates here if I find out any more about my identity. :]
