First find confidence in your own identity. If you embrace it then there is a better chance that others will too. Never apologize for who you are. Lastly separate who will support you from who will not. Only concentrate on who will. They are your true friends anyway. If someone has questions give them an open forum to ask them. Find interests that support being yourself. There are many resources now for transgenders who want to network and there are organizations that help you meet other transgenders. Find people that understand the pressures of this situation. Also be honest with family and friends. If you discuss it openly they will begin to feel comfortable with it. Help them through the awkward phase of exploring this issue. Keep close people that are okay with your choices. Trust them in explaining your decision but not justifying it. Find confidence in your decision
