Hi Jade, nobody can tell you that transition is right for you, but you.

I’m gonna get philosophical here, so apologies if I just come across pretentious.

We have an Authentic Self and an Adaptive Self. To live authentically is to express the ideals, values, and beliefs that we hold, without hesitation. The Adaptive Self is who you need to be when authenticity isn’t making life liveable.

Usually, it’s a balancing act.

Your friend’s support may come from a place of genuine care, but if you can call it pushy, it’s not the right pace for you. If they get upset, ask for patience, discuss the doubts you have about committing to it, it’s a big step, one person’s encouragement for you to be your Authentic Self may not be enough.

Hope that provides some perspective, if nothing else.
