I want to transition but....

Lately I have been having the urge to just stop relaxing and transition. But Im really scared. I'm not scared because of the maintainance because I know I won't have to do any super big things to my hair. Basically all I need to do is lay off the heat and my hair is amazing. What I am scared of is my texture. I have no idea what it will look like. The only picture I have of my hair curly is when I was a toddler with my little 3a/3b curls *(it was so short it was an afro.) the only thing I know about my natural hair is that it is soft not coarse. Help?? I could really use some advice

IMO A Natural hair journey is a transition of the hair and also of the mind in being okay with and loving what God gave you. If relaxing is causing issues you can try stretching or texturizers. why you are scared of your texture? Is it because you find certain curl types unattractive? Or are you afraid of backlash from family and friends? BTW the term coarse in regards to hair means the individual strands are thick. The opposite of coarse hair is fine hair. Are you saying you have fine hair? If so that may be why your hair is easily heat damaged. Try doing sets and using heat protectants.
