Dear Friend,

I don’t know your story.

I cannot imagine how you feel.
I can’t fathom how difficult this road has been for you: the swirling storm of the questions inside your head, the hidden fears you’ve had to constantly keep at bay, the incessant worries about the responses of those you love to your full truth—and to have to endure all of it while living inside a space that does not feel like home.

Rakel:
I really wish we have people around me 60 years ago who have the same compassion and understanding as this author has expressed.

Laura1951:
You and me, both. To have avoided puberty would have worked wonders on our transition.

Laura
