From Joe to Josephine.....De José a Josefa.....
I have a small dilemma. A friend/mentor who I have admired for many years had a gender reassignment. Since I found out, I have felt shock every time I think about them. A lot of important lessons I've learned in life, I have learned from this person. My friend now feels complete and I am happy for them but I can't get over this shock.
Has anyone dealt with this? How do you get over this while your friend or family is making this transition? I have never met anyone close to me who has done this and I have no idea how to support this person even though I am very glad they are happy now.
¿Quién ha tratado con esto? ¿Cómo sobrellevas esto mientras su amigo o familiar hace esta transición? Yo nunca he conocido a alguien cerca de mí, alguien que ha hecho esto y no tengo ni idea de cómo apoyar a esta persona aunque me alegra mucho que se siente feliz ahora.
