Give people time to process your news. Hopefully, you are met with immediate support and love. But some people might need time to adjust to knowing that you are trans. That’s okay; it probably took you a little while to come to terms, too. Find a support system to help you deal with your emotions. Even when it goes smoothly, deciding to transition can be a really emotional experience. In addition to trusted family and friends, reach out to others for support. It can be especially helpful to talk to others who have transitioned to get some advice.
