Support has meant everything to me throughout my transition. This is the biggest and most important decision I've ever made in my life, and all of the people who have stood by me and cheered me on have made it that much easier for me to be brave. I wish that every person with this shared experience would have the same support. Unfortunately, I know that isn't the case.
Having the opportunity to share my story, for anyone to share their story, is also an opportunity to make connections with people and not feel so alone. My transition has been an emotional journey, finding strength in the most surprising places, from people in whom I may not have previously had enough faith.
I am the happiest I've ever been, and I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to seek that happiness every chance I get.
