Love and relationships

The worst aspect of gender transition is relationships. What you thought was unconditional love may not be anything of the sort. Families can be unaccepting or completely rejecting. There can be hatred and total alienation. Not always; I always hope you will be lucky and loved. More than any other theme, I have chewed over the nature of love, how it can change, what it is based on, and how to find it. I have learned a lot, and after a period on my own did come to love and be loved again. I lost, and I gained in many ways. I am happy, but I do know the deep grief of how being trans turns even the closest and longest friendships or love into cold distance.
