Closure

When I first found out that my best friend whom I grew up became transgendered, I didn’t know how to react. It was a lot to take in. I first met her in back in high school when she was a man. She had a different personality then and never once gave me any indication of being non-binary. I realize now that she’s much more solid and in a better frame of my mind so good for her. At least she’s healthy, happy and safe.

Sounds like you’ve accepted the situation as it is because both you and your friend are coming to terms with yourselves and each other. I think you definitely have compassion and a good understanding of what people in the LGBTQ community go through. Thank you for sharing this heartwarming confession, it made my day.

Your post is so spot on and really hit the nail on the head that I feel compelled to share a similar story. A buddy of mine went through a really bad divorce a few years back. Bottom line: the marriage was on the rocks as he settled down with someone who was clearly not a good fit for him. Once he divorced his ex-wife and cut her out of his life, he went through a deep depression. About six months after the divorce, he got gender reassignment surgery and became a woman. They have a daughter and to add insult to injury, the ex-wife is fighting for full custody of their child because she’s transphobic. This has taken a huge toll on my friend’s health because she doesn’t go anywhere without her daughter. God only knows which side will end up having full custody of the little girl. As far as I’m concerned, the child is really an innocent bystander in this whole fiasco.

Once you have kids, your world should revolve around them 1000%- not what you like or feel like or want to do. Sell the motorcycle, stop buying expensive handbags, etc.
Every action should be considered as to how it may affect your kids.
Your friend was very selfish to put his kid through that- he should have waited till she was out of high school.
