After 1 hour of concentration on the True Polymorph spell, the transformation lasts until it is dispelled.

If the target is myself, how can I get back to my normal form?

You've literally stated the answer in your question and it's in True Polymorph's description.

The transformation lasts until it is dispelled.

If someone casts Dispel Magic on you then you get transformed back into yourself.

    \$\begingroup\$ Could you add a citation of the errata? In the earlier printings the spell did not specify "until dispelled" so it might create confusion without sourcing. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Odo: The issue is that as far as I can tell, the PHB errata PDF doesn't actually note the change explicitly (though other changes to the spell are noted there). The latest version of the spell description can be seen here: dndbeyond.com/spells/true-polymorph \$\endgroup\$
