For those who are trying to sort out their gender identity or those who are considering or starting transition, have you ever sought the advice of another trans person who has been through what you are thinking about? Also, it doesn’t have to be specifically about advice. It could be a shoulder to cry on or someone to listen while you vent…
I have talked to many for support and gave support. Over my many years I was a loner, I didn’t want to share, I just wanted to be by myself.
My second wife told me what a fool I was about not telling my story. She told how are going to help others, if you don’t open your (blank) mouth. There are people out there fighting them battles, just like you did. I bet they could really use the advice you could give. You have been through it, and still going though. Tell them about your ups and downs, what you do and didn’t do, what works and doesn’t work, and you’re a mountain of knowledge. So why don’t you share that knowledge, stop being so hard-headed and open up.
Well that time came about the year 2016, I have talked to many in chat, in blogs, forums and who knows what else. I may not be the next Hannah McKnight, but I am giving back and doing my part.
If it was not for my wife, you might never have heard of Hippie
