You get to know people in your neighborhood after a while and they know you. Four years of living like I do now will do that. The same grocery store cashiers, baristas, waiters, neighbors and patrons of places you go to plus the people you meet on your walks. You make new friends.At first it's a bit surreal but then it slowly becomes very normal and people only know this version of you. It makes you gain confidence and erodes away at any self consciousness which remained.
You are now just you. The person you've always been.
