Hi Christy, yes I have been blessed for sure. When I first came out to my partner, she was shocked in a sense. First question was, Are you gay? Nope. It was baby steps for about a week but during that time and for months later, I would remind her if there was anything I could do to help her understand, I was there for her. I constantly reminded her I loved her. After about two weeks, she wanted to see me en femme. Sweating bullets, I obliged. She was impressed, and said to me she always noticed I had very pretty eyes for a guy. She left it at that. As time went on, she took an interest in slowly learning about trans people on her own. I would assist in her learning by answering questions mostly and reminding her I did not choose to be trans but born this way. Over time Idressed more at home eventually coming out and finding the freedom I always deep down needed to get though each day. Talk, support, remind her your love.
small steps, big results.
