Transition is finally beginning to become automatic for me. I’ve still got a lot of work to do with my voice and appearance, but I’m on the way. With that comes a renewed desire to put transition back into the box and let it become one facet of who I am. Part of moving on from transition means finding normalcy in being a woman. I find that these days, I want to just be a normal woman. I see my friends and coworkers doing normal things and I want that too.
I’ve been at this for nineteen months total and living fulltime for seven of those. Way back in January of 2018, a prominent member of the trans community gave me the most important advice ever–Not all reactions are final. What does this mean? It means that when you come out, some will reactive negatively and positively and that either type of reaction can change over time. It’s fairly self-explanatory, but the part I want to hone in on are the reversals of positive reaction reversal.
