The chapter comes to an end...  A new beginning is to commence soon.

Wishing you the best Emma.


Chrissy
Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I would just like to get a late word in before you close the chapter!  Your smile is very attractive, you will have no trouble being accepted out there as an attractive woman.

Thank you so much Dorit.  It is still my greatest fear.

To all, I have decided to start a new chapter in my blog:  "Chapter 4 Becoming Emma".

I could not have come this far without the love and support of you all.

This is the link to the new chapter: https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,253672.new.html#new

Warm hugs,

Emma

So O&C, if I transition, I have to hope that my wife stays with me because I will never be able to date men.  I would be an insecure male's worst nightmare, an attractive, older, intelligent, wealthy, six foot tall woman. ; :o ;D ;D

I am catching up. 10 days since my last visit.  O&C thanks for the kind words a few pages back.  I may post more while catching up but Emma regarding that post above.  I was those things.  I am no longer wealthy but I was.  Not as attractive as you.  Still prefer women but would consider the right guy.

In short I am alone.  And probably will stay that way. Sadly.  But I am me and I have friends I would never have imagined.  A friend from work is a beautiful 36 yr old ciswoman that is a bunch of fun.  If I was still some 59 year old dude she probably wouldn't talk to me.  Just 3 days ago she texted me to ask me to spend the day with her.  It was a blast.  And I got to look at her all day.   :)   

I don't want you to lose your wife but life is waiting for you whichever path you choose.  I may post more after I catch up.

Wow Chrissy you give me way too much credit.  I marvel at the absolute beauty that surrounds the Susans Place community in so many ways and shines from so many souls.

As O&C said, it's only a wig and a dress.  The camera hides so much, thankfully... :)


Hugs,

Emma

UGH Emma stop the modesty.  Yes it is a wig but you do make a beautiful woman.  Your smile is the best part.  You do not need any FFS.  You look great.

I think I can describe my feelings right now. I feel like everything in my life is extremely fragile and that I am living a tragedy surrounded by a life of near perfection.

By “near perfection” I mean that my life is everything I ever wanted. At this stage of my life I should be happy and satisfied but this need to transition puts everyone and everything at risk and I am ready to do it.

That is the tragedy.

Ugh !!!!!  I want to rap you over the head with one of those pool noodles.  You know the long colored styro things,

You do not have everything you wanted in life.  Your wife yes I will grant that. 
Your career the money? Meh

You wanted to be a woman back 50 years ago watching the 'Twilight Zone'  ( I have been on this blog awhile)  :D 

And tragedy?  I don't think living as you is a tragedy.  Your risk to your relationship not withstanding.

I am very concerned about Donna moving to CA.  I think that she has been good for you and I think it may be harder for you than you think.

Here's a summary to end this thread:

Thank you to all of you for your endless support and wonderful love.

I can summarize the three prior chapters as "Do I have gender dysphoria?", "Am  I transgender?", and "What am I transitioning to?"

Here are the links:


Chapter 1 Which Hurts Less? https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,240370.0.html

Chapter 2 So I am Trans, Now What?  https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,248609.0.html

Chapter 3 Great so I am Transitioning, Now What?  https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,252749.0.html



Massive hug to all,
