Happy to have you! It’s not uncommon that folks have done a start-stop along the way. Some are responding to changing circumstances and others out of fear, but there are many reasons why our journeys are not linear.
It’s good that you have aligned yourself with community. Isolation is a big problem for us and it is fortunate to you have resources around you. And yes, others here have also had the problem of family members not being on board. Perhaps some here might share their experiences and provide some insight. However, from my observation, a lot of folks outside of the community have no idea as to what being transgender actually means. There are all sorts of misconceptions out there.
