When J told me he wanted to become a she, I was at a loss for how to react to what he was telling me. As I believed us both to be #heterosexual, it brought up many different thoughts ranging from “Is J really gay?” to “Who can I talk to for information and guidance in my situation?” The biggest question was “How is this going to effect our personal relationship?” I began to question my own sexuality and I wondered if I stayed with J, what did that say about my own sexual preference? I wondered what my children, and our friends would think? I wondered, “How will we be viewed by society?”
I had so many questions!!! We had a number of challenges….there wasn’t just one. My greatest challenge, however,came in finding information and support, and the journey I took to discover for myself, if I should stay or leave the relationship…..and the self-discovery towards understanding the ways our relationship would morph.
Would you share what you feel is your greatest challenge as the #SO in your #relationship? What are your greatest fears, and if you have found answers for yourself….what was your individual #self-discovery?
