So I've come out to two people this weekend! It's been seven weeks now since I realised I was trans and it got to the point this week where I just could not keep it in any longer. I couldn't keep writing emails and texts to my friends pretending things are 'normal' (well, as normal as things can be in 2020) when they're not any more. So I emailed one a friend who lives in Australia who I've known for over 25 years. She was shocked but offered me total unconditional support. Then I met up with a friend locally and had an hour and a half's chat. I probably spilled out too much information and was too honest with her. But again, she was absolutely supportive. I feel a weird mixture of emotions this evening: relief, embarrassment, elation but most of all I'm feeling really..vulnerable. Does it get easier? I'm dreading having to do this over and over, especially with male friends who might not be as positive.
