Trans 30 Day Challenge - Day 10

Day 10 - What are some of your fears in regards to being trans?

I suppose the number one worry is that I'll be treated differently because I'm trans. Nowadays, I just want to be seen and treated like the woman I am, nothing more, nothing less. I don't want to be seen as 'special' or 'different'. I just want to blend in and live my life. And thus far, I have.

When I first came out however, I had many other worries. Transition in a society where it's not understood, let alone accepted, brings many fears. Fears of losing one's employment, of losing one's family, and even of losing one's life. Thankfully, the only one I had to worry about was losing some family but my livelihood, living space, and employment stayed by me. Some are not so lucky.
