Don't feel bad about the makeup, I occasionally email my first therapist and once when I told her about my attempts to put on makeup she replied that she had been doing it for 20 years and still couldn't do it right. I guess that is why they have makeup remover pads. Giggle.

We all have had that fear and it is normal. I waited until I retired to come out full time because I knew how my coworkers would react. But when I did come out to my family, I found that my fears were unfounded. All four of my kids accept and support my decision.

Take your time since transition is a marathon, not a race. Your heart will tell you when to take the next step.

Best wishes on your journey,

Brandi

Susan please don't worry about coming out yet.  It took me time to get somewhat comfortable with myself.  I made small trips into the world en femme to build confidence.  Each was an adventure. Each gave me more confidence.  I also found that over time i began to feel more comfortable which helped me accept myself.  Accepting oneself is often a path to being accepted by others including family.

Enjoy.

 

Hugs,

Hello Susan

 

Don't worry about coming out.  Just take your time coming out and do it when you feel comfortable.  Don't come out just because you have to or someone tells you to come out.  When you are ready, you will know.  

 

From my personal experience, I am came out pretty slow and came out to 1 person at a time.  Just relax and take it at your pase.

 

Lots of Love

 

Amy

      Your eyes look great!   Don't fret about them.  I like the outfit too! 
    • BrandenLeon
      i just got my packer in the mail today and i put it on with my binder. and this feeling i am feeling right now is amazing. i am starting to cry form it. it feels like i am safe.   when i was young i always knew there was something missing in my life, but i never knew what it was. i always felt empty on the inside form it. and now i know what was missing form me so long ago. i am crying with how happy i am form this feeling i have found now. it feel so good. i feel so happy right now i can't even explain it.

      My eyes look so old. I’ve got to do something about that. I have to get a cucumber.

      Yay Josie! Looking good! 🤗

      Hi, due to my weight and being overly hairy at the moment in all the wrong places I suffer regularly from Jock itch during the summer months. (I feel like I am permanently on creams for it) I am just wondering if there is any practical underwear that is for everyday use out there that helps avoid this issue. 😳😳😳
    • Josie Beth
      Pardon the stubble and no makeup but I was so excited to put this outfit on that I had to share the picture. It’s really doing a lot to boost my confidence about going full time in the future. Maybe not in outfits like this all the time but I like most of what I see in the mirror.

      Wise words! I feel like im finding who I truly am finally! Ill start trying to use more masculine clothing maybe and see how it feels probably... Letting my masculine side free!   It's strange to look back and see my denial of my feelings 
    • SugarMagnolia
      That's really good! It definitely makes an emotional connection with me. Well done ❤️
    • SugarMagnolia
      What great updates, Michelle. Thank you for sharing! It's always good to take those scary first steps and have them turn out well ❤️

      Hugs,

      Yes we all have our unique stories yet we are very similar.  No aliens here!   You can be the person you wish to be.  Life isn't always easy, even for cis people, so jump in and be you, be happy.    Jani
    • Jani
      You are certainly not alone.  There are many of us that have similar experiences and we are happy.  You can be too.  Be you!
    • BananaPowered95
      I've been checking the forums lately - it's interesting how many of us have different experiences ! And how others feel like this, I always thought I was an alien! I identified with a lot of stories here and it's nice knowing I'm not alone in this I have some thinking to do yet but being like this forever feels like hell Thanks y'all for the kind answers! Kudos! 😄
    • Jani
      Hello Kylara and welcome!  Thank you for sharing.  You are correct that you can go as far as you wish and be comfortable with your choice.  Bravo for you.  It sounds like you and your wife have a great life.  See you around!     Jani
