A reader asks…
It’s been a year since I came out to my mother, and sixth months since my friends began referring to me by my chosen name and pronouns. I start college soon, and my first year I am really interested in changing my name and developing a treatment plan. But my family made it clear that they are not ready and consider these choices out of the question.
Should I be patient? Or should I really go after the things I want?
If waiting will ease their pain, I’ll try to do it – but if they’ll hate my decisions either way, why should I drag it out?
