It’s the middle of Dec, and the yuletide season is underway! For many of my trans brothers and sisters, this can be a rough time of the year. It is a time, traditionally, to spend with family, friends, and make merry. But what happens to the people who have been disowned by their family? I can only imagine, and thankfully, I have not had to go through this yet.
Even though I am older, and haven’t lived with my parents for a very long time, I still value what they think. I don’t want to be disowned. Who does? Certain off-hand comments made by my mom, either directly or indirectly, lead to her her either knowing SOMETHING is going on with me, and just having general suspicions.
Still, I have a feeling that this is going to hurt my parents beyond words. My dad, specifically, will have a hard time. It is coming up on time to tell them though. It is too hard hiding something this big from them. Especially once hrt really kicks in!
Anyway, I guess I’m thankful for still having the SO by my side! I know that we make a formidable team, and I hope she will be by my side until our dying days. She will be able to help my ‘rents see the light, maybe, lol!
I wish yuletide blessings and a magickal winter solstice to all my sisters and brothers. Stay safe, stay warm, and try to hold on if you are having a hard time. The holidays will be over soon…
