Yes, it is a difficult adjustment for those around you. But here’s the thing: If they really care for your well being as a person, they will eventually come to grips with things. From what you say, it sounds like they are working on it. There will be grief as the former person leaves and the new one arrives, but it isn’t actually a new person. You still carry all of the experiences from before and all of the intelligence you had before and all of the pluses and minuses from before; it is just that the packaging will look different.
Above all, remember that this is a journey and not a sprint. The mind needs time to absorb what you are learning and so does everyone else. This isn’t figuring out what to have for dinner. These are life altering decisions and as such, should command respect.
