I’m here to support my boyfriend. He came out to me a couple weeks ago and I just want him to be happy. I’ve been handling it all well, helping him dress up, helping with his makeup and hair… Doing whatever I can to show support and acceptance but today I lost it in the shower. He caught me crying and immediately washed the makeup from his face which made me feel terrible. We talked about how I’m happy for him and support him but I also need support through this.
I’m hoping to meet some friends who are supporting their partner through this also. Being able to talk to someone who can relate would really help. I don’t want my boyfriend to feel like he’s doing something wrong any time I get sad relating to this.
Hopefully this post finds its way to anyone on the supporting end of transgender.
